Amy Raasch
Amy Raasch
Amy Raasch is an American media installation artist based in Los Angeles. Trained at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art after earning a literature degree from the University of Michigan, Raasch’s work spirals outward from core concepts into wildly eclectic albums, plays, films, apps, and theatrical monologues. As an actor, she has appeared in several productions for theater and feature film, including Sundance competition feature “the four corners of nowhere” by Stephen Chbosky (“The Perks Of Being A Wallflower,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Wonder”), and recently contributed music to Sony Classics release, “The Diary Of A Teenage Girl.” A classically trained flutist, Raasch uncovered a gift for songwriting on set of a film in which she had been cast as a folksinger. Cut to debut album “Love or Inertia,” which inspired Music Connection Magazine to name her one of the Top Unsigned Artists in Los Angeles. She followed with “52 Songs in 52 Weeks,” an episodic collection of live video performances of works-in-progress examining the role of inspiration in songwriting. Turning her eye to filmmaking, she created animated short film, “Cat Bird Coyote,” which also serves as music video for her musique concrète-style track, “Breathe My Breath.” An Official Selection of seventeen film festivals, the film garnered Best Animated Film honors in the Big Apple and Los Angeles Independent Film Festivals. Next came psychedelic retro pop romp “Kitty Decides,” a web installation to benefit animal rescue. The project unpacks the international obsession with the online feline while simultaneously delivering a stealth feminist manifesto (before there was #pussygrabsback, there was #KITTYDECIDES). 100% of proceeds benefit animal welfare efforts. Both films have been distributed by Virgin America Airlines. Last summer, she debuted new solo multimedia performance work, “The Animal Monologues.” Comprised of theatrical monologues, original music and film and ranging from laugh-out-loud funny to touching to absurd, the show explores the animalistic behavior of humans in love. Named Best of Son of Semele’s Solo Creation Festival 2017, the piece is slated to appear in the United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City and the Solo Queens Festival in Los Angeles this fall. Themes from the project appear on her recently released album of quirky electronic pop, “GIRLS GET COLD,” available on iTunes and amyraasch.com.
