Kat de Ville “EMERGENCE”
Me and piano, magic on the tips of my fingers. I like to feel the flow , when i‘m improvising, I like then to develop my piece to perfection.
Emergence is the presence in a system of special properties that are not inherent in its individual components and blocks. The irreducibility of the properties of a system to the sum of the properties of its components. I took my usual melodic pianos, mixed with some ambient synths and pulsation, spiced it up with vocalizations and added some street noises from Berlin city life.
In philosophy, systems theory, science, and art, emergence occurs when an entity is observed to have properties its parts do not have on their own, properties or behaviors which emerge only when the parts interact in a wider whole. All the facets of my music mixed together are creating very special atmosphere and fusion of sounds.

Kat constantly and consistently challenges the status quo, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in music, art, and technology. She is always doing something – sound, video, photography, film, music. Working with others on projects. Performing on stage. Designing music instruments. She is a creative powerhouse to watch when it comes to her arts.
Her original style mixed ambient darkness with the electronic sounds and very subtle piano melodies, adding elements of classical, jazz improv, soundtrack music, and trip-hop downtempo beats. She created an atmospheric dark sound. Her highly intellectual art has musical contrasts which have always been deep, and at the very heart of Kat’s music, occasional contradictions that make her tracks as musically complex and exploratory as they are catchy.
“I’ve always been obsessed with science since I was a child. I was a very curious kid, and I was always wondering how our world is functioning. What is the nature of the sound? How do you get a reflection in the mirror? A smartphone with a digital camera and a microphone is a real treasure for me. Now I’m always taking photos, filming, or recording stuff for no reason other than to document what is going on around me. It’s a kind of reassurance to myself that these things actually happened. My imagination is both a blessing and a curse, but I’m happy that I found a way to express my inner universe with sound and visual, and this is the most exciting thing in life for me. I use my kinky fantasy, my graceful body, things surrounding me to express what I have inside with visual and sound imageries.”
