"– I’m not looking to be within a specific style, nor let go of my references. I consider myself eclectic, in terms of gender, however I pay particular attention to the interpretation. Some of my influences show through in many of the songs."
"– I give great emphasis to the emotional aspect of the sounds. I worry especially by the presence of the random or unique. Events as a note “out” or a silence where expecting something. Noises from the system itself analog playback and recording greatly. I am interested enough to investigate to what extent the "bug" brings authenticity, and therefore excitement to music. My perception is that what we connect with a song are just little nuances that make the sound perceived personally, creating surprise by not being within expectations."
