MIAUX
MIAUX Belgium
Some of the most gentle, expressive music coming from the Belgian underground surely can be found in the work of MIAUX (pronounce as ‘MIO’), the operating handle of Sarajevo born Belgian Mia Prce. 

The general gloom MIAUX spreads on her sandwiches is darker than Tatort and could replace any soundtrack of a Fassbinder movie.’  – Dennis Tyfus 

Armed with a synth and devastating song writing skills, her music is minimal, melancholic and timeless, somewhere between Roedelius, Ruth White and electronic realisations of Baroque music.’ - Roope Eronen 

MIAUX is a mistress of elaborate keyboard shenanigans of a very soundtrackly nature. It is soaked with a haunted, lonely quality that touches the edges of mystery like a torch. It's easy to imagine a Jodorowsky carnival scene, shot like the opening of Welles' Touch of Evil, while her albums spin.’  – Byron Coley 


Mia Prce, originally from Sarajevo and a Belgian resident since 1989, was reared on a psychedelic diet of Krautrock and similarly serpentine music by her artist parents who were part of the Antwerp-based Ercola collective. 

MIAUX’s first musical crush happened during the tv reruns of Sarajevo’s 1984 Winter Olympics, where ski jumps on Mt. Igman were perfectly paired with Vangelis’ Chariots of Fire, set in the mass-melancholia of post Tito’s crumbling down of the golden Yugoslavian era. 

Getting her first mini synth at the age of 5, while surrounded by the soundtrack of her parents’ records, made her love for instrumental electronic music grow even more. 

After moving to Antwerp, Belgium in 1989, MIAUX grew up getting hooked on her father’s cassettes of kraut music, early electronica and loads of jazz. 
Graduating as a classical pianist, she was totally bummed out by the feeling of only reproducing other people’s music, she started writing her own compositions. 

In 2010, some self-dubbed tapes, holding 3 songs, lead to her first seven-inch on Dennis Tyfus’ Ultra Eczema label, who has continued to release most of her following ethereal recordings. Over the years she has also put out music on Lal Lal Lal, Feeding Tube Records and Edicoes CN. 

Videodroom festival Gent, invited MIAUX to compose a completely new score for Herk Harvey’s 1962 cult classic 'Carnival of Souls’. In which the original score’s church organs make way for MIAUX’ synthesiser. 

She performed the live score at Videodroom festival/ Film festival Gent, Belgium in October 2022 and Curtas Film festival 2023 in Portugal. 

MIAUX rearranged & recorded the compositions into 6 songs, which are to be released on vinyl & digitally as ‘Never Coming Back’ album on VierNulVier’s own record label in spring 2024.
