LYDIA AINSWORTH
unveils “White Shadows’taken from ‘Right From Real Part I’ EP out June 9th on Arbutus Records

Composer / producer / singer Lydia Ainsworth has been secretly writing and recording songs over the past three years from bedrooms and basements between Toronto and Brooklyn. What began as pass-time sketches between composing music for film and multimedia projects has over time revealed an enchanting collection of experimental pop songs with a life of their own.

Blurring the boundaries between indie music, filmic orchestration, and electronic music, Lydia’s debut ‘Right From Real’ thrives on haunting melodies and draws inspiration from a wide range of musical sources – Verdi’s Requiem, Ace of Base, Bulgarian Choirs, Bernard Herrmann, Tones on Tail, Art of Noise… just to name a few. This sense of unexpected marriages of influence flows throughout much of Lydia’s previous work which features use of voice sampling and string arrangements woven into a unique minimalist fabric.

“As I listen to the finished album I am reminded of the immense comfort I felt in the obscurity of it’s destination. I became entranced by the evolving process that took shape within those invisible tactile walls of tradition. Whether I was sampling instruments/ writing lyrics/ incorporating lyrics by my pen pal Matthew/ recording multiple arrangements for each song – stripping them down – building them back up – I was guided only by a relentless instinctive urge to express what I could not in waking life. The songs approach dreams, thoughts, and inspirations that demand a search for the unknown, a search for something beyond what the five senses can offer.”
