Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith (2017)
Los Angeles, CA
Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith’s burbling, Buchla 100 synthesizer soundscapes carry the torch of pioneering women in the world of ambient music. Like her forbearer Suzanne Ciani (who Smith collaborated with on 2016’s captivating EP Sunergy), Smith has mastered the new age practice of melodically meditative ambient experimentalism. Live, Smith’s use of modular synthesizers adds visual intrigue to auditory bliss.
