about

LE043

Aimée Portioli, also known as Grand River, is a Dutch-Italian composer, poly-instrumentalist and producer based in Berlin. While mainly connected to the fields of electronic music and sound design, her compositions transcend these genres. Her work is known equally for her film scores as for her experimental and ambient projects. Influenced by classical minimal music Grand River’s work integrates a large variety of sound structures and symphonic calculations, often blurring the lines between traditional composition and research-based modernism.

Aimée also runs the record label One Instrument.

Artist notes:

This piece is a dialogue between acoustic-organic and electronic sounds which are created in a way to be harmonically combined, as if part of a same world where both such opposite musical sources coexist.

Composed with a Schimmel Classic 16 acoustic upright piano, Make Noise Telharmonic, Morphing Terrarium E350, Mutable Instruments Clouds, Eventide H3000, Yamaha DX7, Moog DFAM, Lexicon MPX100 and foley recordings. Recorded and composed in Berlin, Germany in Autumn, 2019.

Deep listening has become to me a necessity, both as a listener and composer which helps me to be more mindful and aware of what I experience. I consider it a precious and beautiful tool that enhances my daily life.
