My musical training began at the age of four years old, through Mr. Diggelmann’s (Petit Théâtre) "Baby Art" classes in Lausanne.
My first instrument was the violin at six, I practiced it for seven years, then took one year of piano at the conservatory and self-taught myself guitar during my teens. In 1999, I left Switzerland to spend eight years in the United States, moving from the East Coast to the West Coast and back again.
This is where I started to build and manipulate sound, to venture and experiment with different styles, ranging from death / black metal (Nicodemus) to opera (Nashville Opera Association).
In 2008, I returned to Switzerland and since then I have continued composing/producing, playing shows as well as lending my voice for professional backings and voice-overs. I am also a member of the web-band collective BLEEP and currently work with national / international producers and musicians such as:
DJ Deheb (FR / CH), Borrowed Identity (DE), DJ Synapse Trap (USA / China), SoFoReal Productions (USA), Steven Sibley (USA), DJ Ursa (USA), DJ Albruic (CH), Shaper / Shaypah (CH), AOSº/Art of Sound (USA / CH), VANYA a.k.a BAHR (DE/RU), Spokenn (USA), Mark Kelly (CH/UK), Peter King (CH/USA - Playground), to name a few.
She is working on three diferent EPs that I plan on releasing between 2014 and 2015. Seilen is currently eagerly performing solo and working on releasing her first EP in 2013. She is also featured on the albums of Hi Def Music (BE), "SPLENDOM" by Ben Krahl (DE) and will be featured on the upcoming albums "VISIONS OF THE FUTURE" by AOS (CH), and the new EP of Japanese MC, Tomoaki Hashiguchi (JAP). I usually perform my live set along side DJ Albruic (CH) or DJ Samgratte (CH - Unreleased Kollektiv), live musicians and a VJ.
Artists like Björk, Billie Holiday,Little Dragon, Shiina Ringo, Sigur Rós, Sia, Jimi Hendrix, Steely Dan, Tori Amos, Tool, Louis Jordan and Radiohead profoundly influenced the artist, whose music is distinctly eclectic.
She is currently working towards new releases and looking for new ways to make her audience take a travel into her universe.
