Dent in the Crystal

EP album

November 2019

3 produced songs that are influenced by experimental & electronic music along with visuals that are influenced by surrealism, minimalism, abstract , dada-ism and neo-realism. She uses technology as one of her main tools of production; a great tool to be taken advantage of. But she questions; are we only using technology as a tool? Or are we dependent on it? When it comes to music/art making, who is the creator of your work? Is it pure love and passion? Or is it the program? Who or what is the reflection of your work? Is it both? If so, can you differentiate between the two? What happens to us as artists if we eliminate the program?This project reflects her process of thoughts and emotions towards these issues. A reflection of her process of creating art and music out of the program and through an experience which was delivered and presented in a showcase through an audio-visual installation.

I speak to others through art and they connect with me through the opening of their minds to that art.
