Doll Imago is comprised of one roque artist dedicated to creating a unique atmosphere through digital soundscapes and melodic exploration. Inspired by her studies of classical composers, particularly the music of Chopin, Kabalevsky and Debussy, she has paved a way to decipher her own interior stirrings to compose. Currently her calling to classical music has lead her to study the music of Phillip Glass, Arvo Part and Michael Nyman.
Currently her calling to classical music has lead her to study the music of Phillip Glass, Arvo Part and Michael Nyman. This has in turn opened the doors to the music of a pop/ambient/ethereal learning including Harold Budd, Brian Eno and early 4AD bands like the Cocteau Twins where the ethos of the music of these composers can already be heard in her original music.
Although her composing style blossomed years before hearing these artists it is testimony to the fact that "it is in the air"-individuals with similar aims, in the case of beauty and simplicity will arrive at similar results. Doll Imago uses drone to promote stillness, uses repetition to stabilize the attention and variation of melody to create drama, narrative and reflection.
Her music intimates it's purpose and furtively rewards the listener who is attuned to the subtlety of it's language; a language that pushes to and fro from wistful speculation to the point of discovery, an answer to the question that is sometimes discordant and earthbound and sometimes graceful and otherworldly.
It seems the kind of music that can only come from a contemplative essence that is grounded in the world of the present while being steeped in the tradtions of the past. It is an intimate soundtrack to private moments, providing empathy to the solitary part of the individual.
"my music has blossomed from soundscapes, melodic exploration to include using beats and the technology made availabe through the existence of virtual instruments and computers."
