Wilted Woman is the primary musical alias of Elizabeth Davis since 2014. Her output under the WW name disregards genre or easy categorization, ranging from minimalist electroacoustics to harsh noise to something resembling club music. She composes using a combination of self-made instruments and software, violin, drum machines, bluetooth peripherals, and other sounding objects. In addition to her solo work, she regularly collaborates with Silvia Kastel as Shakey, with Christoph de Babalon as Suds, and with Nick Klein.
As WW, she has released over 20 records to date on labels such as Alien Jams, Primitive Languages/Psychic Liberation, Phantasy, and Stenze Quo. Davis has performed at venues and festivals across Europe and North America including Sonic Acts, Cafe Oto, Transmediale, ZKM, Fylkingen, Meakusma, and Volksbühne, as well as countless basements, clubs, restaurants, and living rooms.
Davis also works as a sound designer, engineer and technician. Sometimes, she organizes events and releases music on behalf of untergang-institut, or together with Bridget Ferrill for Power Loom, a monthly concert series at KM28. As a private person, Davis builds all kinds of instruments and teaches on sound-adjacent topics, most recently at the UdK Berlin. She was born in New York, USA but lives since many years in Berlin, Germany and produces a monthly program as DJ PUDDLE on Cashmere Radio.
