Los Angeles, CA- If the furthest fathoms of the sea had a soundtrack – if a journey beyond the event horizon of a black hole could have a theme – it would be composed by Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. With organically driven visuals projected behind her in full technicolor, Kaitlyn sets a mood that is an absolute perfect match with the synthesized compositions that she performs. Unlike other artists performing similar music, Kaitlyn isn’t beholden to merely playing pre-recorded loops with her eyes hypnotized by the screen of a laptop.
A classically trained musician, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith physically routes her sound, connecting one patch to another in real-time and with real patch cables, slowly building her incredibly beautiful, ethereal music from the ground up using hands, voice, and feet to hold it all together.
Small and soft-spoken, her music is anything but. It’s all-encompassing. Hers is the type of electronically driven music that surrounds you like a warm blanket. And while the visuals she brings along are beautiful, the inescapable contemplative nature of the experience almost begs for you to close your eyes and soak the music into you through eager pores. Filling you to the brim.
And while the Pico-Union Project’s Jewish temple is a warm and magnificent venue, intimate halls such as theirs won’t be sufficient to house her performances for long.
Opening sets were performed by Maria Usbeck, and electronic pop artist who uses traditional Latin American instruments and recordings of live, natural sounds and Cool Maritime.
