"A Journey with Personal Statements"
“Untitled (2014-2016)” is a collection of six musical works, written and/or performed by Daniela Orvin. Selected and curated by sound-artists Thomas Radam & Benjamin Duester, owners of “Gravity’s Rainbow Tapes” label from Berlin.
“Untitled (2014-2016)” is a musical journey which starts with a dark sound work, travels through Ambient, Classical and Neo classical piano pieces, and ends with a song, in which Orvin sings in Hebrew. It’s a journey full of personal statements, self reflective like fragments from a diary. A diary written in Berlin, and inspired by the same state of mind that influences her atmospheric minimal and minor art.
