Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith Is Exploring Various Artistic Expressions The Heralded Electronic Artist Incorporates Dance Elements To Her Hollywood Bowl Performance
“… Kicking off the evening’s musical offering was the enigmatic recording artist Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. After a fantastic 2017 with the release of her undeniably brilliant album The Kid, Kaitlyn has been busy sowing the seeds of her own mini empire with an independent label TouchthePlants. The aim of this venture is to explore a wide range of artistic pursuits including “music, dance, film, poetry, photography, instruments, explorations, experiences, clothing, fortunes [and] symposiums” and her performance at the Hollywood Bowl seemed to represent the artistic manifestation of that endeavor.
Armed with an ensemble of synths and decks around her, Kaitlyn took center stage on the grand Hollywood stage. As she commenced to envelope the concert’s early arrivals with her sensational electronic barrage, a trio of dancers took the stage to bring her music to life. Their lithe bodies pulsed and undulated with every dynamic swell, and their presence definitely added a new dimension to Kaitlyn’s already complex music. While I would have loved to see some equally dynamic stage production effects (i.e. lighting), it was easy to get lost in Kaitlyn’s musical soundscape.
