Lydia Ainsworth: Right From Real
Composer / producer / singer Lydia Ainsworth has been secretly writing and recording songs over the past three years from bedrooms and basements between Toronto and Brooklyn. What began as pass-time sketches between composing music for film and multimedia projects has over time revealed an enchanting collection of experimental pop songs with a life of their own.
Blurring the boundaries between indie music, filmic orchestration, and electronic music, Lydia's debut "Right From Real" thrives on haunting melodies and draws inspiration from a wide range of musical sources - Verdi's Requiem, Ace of Base, Bulgarian Choirs, Bernard Herrmann, Tones on Tail, Art of Noiseâ€¦ to name a few. This sense of unexpected marriages of influence flows throughout much of Lydia's work which features use of voice sampling and string arrangements woven into a unique minimalist fabric.
Lydia Ainsworth's debut "Right From Real" will be released 09.30.14 on Arbutus Records.
