South African-British producer and composer, Mira Calix has died at the age of 52.
Her label Warp Records has confirmed the news via Social media and wrote that “We are devastated to learn about the death of our dear Mira Calix (Born Chantal Passamonte).
“Mira was not only a hugely talented artist and composer, she was also a beautiful, caring human who touched the lives of everyone who had the honour of working with her.”
The statement continued: “Mira has been a huge part of Warp’s family and history, as one of the first female artists signed to the label and releasing six albums from ‘one on one’ in 2000 to ‘absent origin’ in 2021.
“We are so proud of her immense creative output; her artwork, videos and music were a true reflection of what an innovative, pioneering and wonderful soul she was.
“She pushed the boundaries between electronic music, classical music and art in a truly unique way. She will be terribly missed by everyone at the label, staff and artists alike.”
