MONA MUR, extravagant vocalist, composer and sound designer, has gained her reputation in the international avantgarde scene collaborating with artists such as "Einstürzende Neubauten", "The Stranglers", "Yello" and the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra.

In the '82 punk explosion she hooked up with FM Einheit, Marc Chung and Alexander Hacke, straight away conquering London NEW MUSICAL EXPRESS's Single of the Week slot with the 12'' "Jeszcze Polska". Featuring a violently orchestral sound of darkest shades, their concerts in manic intensity and morbid slowbeat chic were foundation stones for her cult image until today.

Mur, also a successful martial artist and former German Vice Champion in Taekwon Do, is one of the few german singers creating her own dark, mysterious, aggressive but at the same time beautiful musical world exploring the fields of electronic industrial, wave, postpunk and a hefty german chanson "cabaret" tradition à la Brecht/Weill.

In 1990 Mona Mur and Yello's Dieter Meier hired the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and Polish rockstar/producer Grzegorz Ciechowski for the Album WARSAW. The concept album was unreleased at the time, but four of the songs were later covered by polish singer Katarzyna Groniec. Her album "Mesczysny" (SONY Poland 2000) entered the national charts, the Mona Mur song "Paintings" became a hit single selling more than 70,000 copies.

In 1999 Mona Mur joined the Computer Games Industry as Lead Audio Artist and composer for software developer TERRATOLS, Potsdam-Babelsberg. Her unique style of eerie, haunting and phantastic electronic music and Sound FX can be found in Games such as "BALLANCE" (ATARI USA/Japan 2006, awarded "Seal of Excellence" in Adrenaline Vault) or VELVET ASSASSIN (Replaystudios/GAMECOCK MEDIA 2008). GamersHell called the music "Emotional Industrial" and previewed the ultradark neo-expressionist tracks as "pieces of relentless brutality and insidious beauty."

Director Fatih Akin chose three of her tracks for his worldwide awarded movie "Head On/Gegen die Wand" (Berlin Golden Bear 2004, European Film Award 2004).

Today, Mona Mur is also back to singing and performing. Her CD-compilation "Into Your Eye" (DARK DIMENSIONS), a retrospective collection of her more than 20 years of work, not only contains the typical 80s punk wave elements of her music and some of the orchestrated WARSAW-tracks but also new dark wave songs written and produced with Christian St. Claire.

2009 saw the release of the album MONA MUR & EN ESCH "120 Days - The Fine Art of Beauty and Violence" (PALE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL 02/2009), a collaboration with EN ESCH, known as charismatic frontman of the US/german industrial rockband KMFDM. The accomplished producer has drastically transformed Mur's most intense 80s Songs into a unique blend of electronic drum loops, bass, dirty organ and wild guitars.
