Moscow’s Kedr Livanskiy has announced her debut LP Ariadna, out Friday 8th September, and shares the opening title track which was named after the Greek goddess, Adriane. Listen below!
Kedr Livanskiy (real name Yana Kedrina) confesses “Synthesizers help me maximally feel the present moment.” Livanskiy was born into a shifting and critical time for Russia. The Soviet Union had exhausted and old values were anathematised because of reconstruction. A sense of displacement drove Kedr to find herself.
Kedr considers this album to be divided into different parts. The first half revolves around mythological thoughts and the second takes cues from the urban and suburban environments around her.
Ariadna was written using the Roland SH-101, Roland Juno 106 and Korg Minilogue synthesisers, then mixed down in Ableton, whereas her EP January Sun was written and recorded completely in Ableton. According to Kedr, “This way, one gets into a flow of live interaction, here and now, with the instrument.”
