Waterflower Riga, Latvia
Musically, Waterflower draws upon genres like Electronica, Experimental Pop and Ambient. Her multi-layered compositions are created from sampled sounds like toy beeps, running water, glass beads, gardening tools, and are then mixed with synthesizers, orchestral sounds - like the violin, ghostly piano melodies and her sublime vocals. On stage, a live potted plant is transformed into a touch-sensitive synthesizer using capacitive sensors. A similar technique also allows a separate plant to also act as a real-time midi controller for the artist’s visuals. The video animations display themes such as nature, science and the interaction of the two. One could say that “Waterflower” is like a sci-fi journey to a world outside of our time-line.
