"AGF (a.k.a. Antye Greie) is a vocalist, a software musician, a producer, an e-poet.
She was born and raised in East Germany and developed an early interest for music, poetry and philosophy.
In 1996, with Jotka, she formed the electronic pop duo Laub, which recorded a series of records on the Kitty-Yo label. AGF became interested in the artistic exploration of digital technology, which is manifested on her first solo record, "Head Slash Bauch" (on Orthlorng Musork), where she translated fragments of HTML script and software manuals into a form of electronic poetry and deconstructed pop. The follow-up record, "Westernization Completed", won an Award of Distinction at the 2004 Ars Electronica festival. Her collaboration with Sue Costabile involving live audio-visual improvisation resulted in the 2006 AGF.3 + SUE.C CD/DVD release called "Mini Movies" (on Asphodel).

Greie's work was rewarded with a cover story on the May issue of the UK Wire Magazine 2006. She runs her own label AGF Producktion and has collaborated with Vladislav Delay, Craig Armstrong, Kataryna Zavoloka, and QUIO. She also performs and records with the laptop quartet Lappetites, which includes Eliane Radigue, Kaffe Matthews, and Ryoko Kuwajima.

Exploring a personal form of poetry into electronic music, pop songs, calligraphy and the world wide web, her entrancing live performances and sound installations have taken place all over the world in museums, auditoriums, theaters, concert halls and clubs. AGF lives and works in Berlin."
