Antye Greie (also known as AGF or poemproducer) is a poet, sound artist, sound sculptor and curator. She was born in East Germany and has lived on the island of Hailuoto in Northern Finland for over fifteen years. She started playing in the experimental electronic group Laub in Berlin in the early 1990s and has then built an ongoing career of feminism, network building, collaborative practices and radical ecology. Her practice, both poetic and political, transcends music and takes place between listening, communicating and collaborating with others in many platforms, formats and alliances. Thus, AGF addresses language, sound and the body and explores different methods, from deconstructing texts to implementing what she calls “feminist sound technologies”.
AGF works with language, sound, listening, voice and communication expressed in mixed media, live audiovisual performances, digital communication, sound installations, commissioned works for radio, film and theatre, exhibitions and conceptual works. Greie-Ripatti has released 30 long-player records and numerous collaborations under aliases such as AGF, AGF/Delay (with Vladislav Delay), Greie Gut Fraktion (with Gudrun Gut) and The Lappetites (with Kaffe Matthews and Eliane Radigue), many collaborations with award-winning classical composer Craig Armstrong. She runs the production company and music label AGF PRODUCKTION and has produced records for other artists, most famously Ellen Allien (SOOL, 2009, BPitch).
