BRIANNA AMORE aka DJ SELEKTRA

Transmedia digital artist Brianna Amore, aka DJ Selektra, plays an eclectic range of psychedelic, mind-expanding sounds and curates transformational music events, architects immersive experiences, and produces CG/VFX works. Brianna’s DJ artistry draws upon years of performing live sets at festivals and underground dance parties. DJ Selektra performs boundary-pushing, multi-hour sets spanning a range of sounds — from downtempo to house, midtempo glitch, psytrance, and progressive techno — for some dancefloors, up to 10 hours. In 2013 Vortex Immersion Media invited Brianna to join as contract animator where she began exploring Fulldome and Virtual Reality content production, forging a new language in immersive media.

Graduating as Visual Communications Valedictorian of Alberta University of the Arts in Calgary, Canada, Brianna started out as an Environmental Graphic Designer at Gottschalk + Ash International, doing large-scale architectural graphic projects for hospitals, airports, convention centers, and museums. In 2007 Brianna’s team won the Society of Environmental Graphic Designers (SEGD) top award for the redesign of Alberta Hospital Ponoka. In Vancouver, she completed major UI/UX work, and co-founded and produced Entheos Gathering, which ran over 6 years, contributing to what’s now known as the West Coast festival vibe.

Brianna earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Geography double major from University of Calgary, and she served as an Army Reservist of the Canadian Armed Forces Signals Corps, holding a Top Secret security clearance. In addition, Brianna instructed in design at Alberta University of the Arts, and started on her DJ path at her university radio station, which is where she curated the station’s first underground electronic music show.
