My name is Gabriella. I’ve been very much living in my own bubble for the past few weeks. I am beginning to have the great pleasure of working with choirs… something that is greatly fascinating and has consumed me whole. All my work recently is very choir/choral/musical/satire related. I record in my bedroom everyday that I can- always at my desk looking out a window. That’s very important to me, a window. I don’t listen to much music that will interfere with my headspace when I’m recording. Mostly it’s classical music on the radio… or Nocturne no.2 op. 9 e flat…… Brian Eno has been floating around a bit and so has Vashti Bunyan. I am taking great solace these days in listening to very delicate music. I’ve had the incredible honor of seeing two Chamber Orchestras recently…. I am indulging in strings like one does in ice cream. I feel like solitude might be a theme, as boring as it seems, that I am associating with things like the drums off Neil Young’s “Harvest”, or the beautiful weaving of desolate imagery on “On The Beach”…. Or Vashti’s raindrop voice cooing about unrequited love. Anyway, I think that I am happy. I think the most important thing is to be at ease and happy with yourself, and I think that is success.
