Her work inhabits an augmented space where pounding Berlin experimental techno, spoken word, abstract video art, feminism and radical ecology create a self-sustaining environment. Originally from East Germany, she started to develop a DIY approach early on, while also using her voice to fight against oppression by supporting marginalized communities and calling out injustice, most recently through female:pressure, a support community and promotional platform for female-identified electronic musicians. Currently based in Northern Finland, Antye founded the local arts organization Hai Art in Hailuoto. Since its inception in 2011, Hai Art has been involved in numerous sound-related projects, focusing on working with children. Antye acts as its director, curator and workshop instructor.

1/German artist AGF aka Antye Greie-Ripatti is a sonic warrior and electronic music producer. Her music inhabits an augmented space where pounding experimental techno, spoken word, abstract video art, feminism and radical ecology create a self-sustaining environment. Originally from East Berlin, she started to develop a DIY approach early on, while also using her voice to fight against oppression by supporting marginalized communities and calling out injustice, most recently through female:pressure, a support community and promotional platform for female-identified electronic musicians.
Currently based in Northern Finland, Antye founded the local arts organization Hai Art in Hailuoto. Since its inception in 2011, Hai Art has been involved in numerous sound-related projects, focusing on media arts with children. Antye acts as its director, curator and a workshop instructor.
Active since the early 90's, she has collaborated with strong names in electronic music such as French pioneer Eliane Radigue, German legends Gudrun Gut and Ellen Allien, British avantgardist Kaffe Matthews, Finnish IDM treasure Vladislav Delay and classical composer Craig Armstrong.
Antye Greie-Ripatti, better known as AGF, uses electronic music as her medium to express her love for poetry, nature, new media art and strong female figures. A self-described poem producer, she courageously walks the thin line between music, contemporary art and activism.
Antye (or Agee, as friends call her) grew up in East Germany and witnessed firsthand the fall of the Wall and the rise of techno culture. As a teen, she directly experienced the crumbling of dictatorship and took Philosophy courses at Bauhaus Dessau, which lead to her questioning her Marxist upbringing.
In the German macho white hetero techno scene of the early 90's, men were banishing vocals from the club, insisting on not expressing emotion. Antye, on the other hand, rebelled against the trend by incorporating spoken word and poetry within her rough, techno sound. Her curious nature and mercurial spirit allowed her music to expand beyond the confines of traditional beat making, into the realm of sound art, poetry, video, performance and activism.
Twenty years, some awards and collaborations later, she is still fighting to get women the visibility they deserve, whether with online platform female:pressure or by collaborating with risk-taking artists such as Afghan refugee Kubra Khademi. Active for over 15 years, female:pressureis for electronic music what Guerilla Girls was for contemporary art. Their charts breaking down the glaring inequality of male and female artists in music festivals have reached internet art status.
Antye lives on an island in Northern Finland, records sounds in the woods, posts poems via twitter and through a poem newsletter one can subscribe on her website.
In 2011 she founded the arts organization Hai Art in Hailuoto, where she activates as director, executive producer , workshop leader and independent sound curator.
Over the years, Hai Art has organized numerous conferences and art residencies, mainly focusing on programs dedicated to children. They developed projects such as the iPad Orchestra Hailuoto, built an acoustic sculpture The Hailuoto Organum in public space, facilitated a children MediaLAB and numerous sound art camps.
Her work is constantly expanding into new territories, most recently incorporating radical mycology, performance art and radio work.
