Jeanne Artemis [ʒan ɑrteːmɪs] is a composer based in Berlin, Germany.
The purpose of her work is to create solace and compassion for the invisible suffering of the many and the few. The results are individual aural bodies that seek connection with those who experience darkness.
The origins for her musical mind were found by her at an early age in the european modernism, the achievements of cultures outside of europe and the innovative forms of the underground music scenes.
She has received scholarships from the Goethe Institute, the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe, Musikfonds e.V., Neustart Kultur and Deutscher Musikrat among others. A portrait was published in the "Neue Zeitschrift für Musik" (issue #2_2021).
Her music is performed around the world, in e.g. Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Iran, Italy, Mexico, Sweden, United Kingdom and USA.

I have known Jeanne Artemis for many years now. Her unique music is like black magic, captivating the listener. She writes strong and very expressive music, at the same time rationally controlling the elements she uses for constructing the whole compositional form. I as a curator at the Tehran Contemporary music festival gladly had the premiere of one of her new orchestral pieces at the 2019 edition of the festival. Also as a teacher in composition, I suggested her music and her scores to my composition pupils many times.
Idin Samimi Mofakham (Composer, Performer and Curator), Iran/Norway
Jeanne’s music is unique, full of energy and of rough, graceful beauty. Her works sound dissonant and microtonal, love to move in a polyrhythmic manner and weave unexpected sound shapes - powerful, almost brutal, but in equal measure soft and iridescent.
Sylvia Hinz (Recorder Player and Conductor), Germany
There is a deep, burning intensity in this work. Excellent piece. (about "Literatura Oscura")
Marc Yeats (Composer, Researcher and Visual Artist), UK
Wenn man deine Partitur anschaut, man merkt, dass es eine komplexe Musik ist. Ich möchte sagen, dass das bemerkenswert ist, wie transparent du im besten Sinne des Wortes das beherrschst, diese Form von Komplexität.
Violeta Dinescu (Komponistin), Rumänien/Deutschland
Already from the beginning the composition Message II by Jeanne Artemis stood out sonically. The composer uses prolonged, e.g. flageolet sounds, which emerge and dissolve as if from nowhere - real music of immateriality.
glissando Magazine, Poland
This is a tremendous piece. It demonstrates great compositional skill and a vivid imagination, while packing a considerable emotional punch. The last several minutes in particular are an impressive display of the sonic assault that can be provided by five acoustic cellos. (about "Haptische Schatten")
Paul Christopher (Cellist, Associate Professor of Cello and Music Theory at Northwestern State University of Louisiana), USA
A stroll through the works of Jeanne Artemis reveals a great diversity of compositional ‚settings’: in many places she presents herself as a refined experimenter, but at times she also chooses - seemingly - more conventional textures. A recurring motif, for all the diversity of her approaches, is the exploration of physicality in music.
Martin Tchiba (Pianist and Composer in the "Neue Zeitschrift für Musik"), Germany
