Eva Schlegel – Random Interlude
Eva Schlegel is from St Petersburg, though her name hardly sounds Russian. I wonder what the story is there? She describes herself as a sound engineer and producer but Googling didn’t really take me much further than that. There’s something compellingly cold about the fractured, tinkling, trip hop of Random Interlude, taken from her album Broken Doll.
It’s out on Southern City Lab from Russia, so the blurb’s in Russian
это сборник случайных мыслей – треков, которые получились в ходе музыкальных медитаций и импровизаций. Трип-хоп в чистом виде не является моим основным стилем написания музыки, но, пожалуй, именно он оказывает наибольшее воздействие на моё сознание и чувства
I think this translates as “a collection of random thoughts – tracks that are received during meditation music and improvisation. Trip-hop in its purest form is not my main writing style of music, but perhaps it was he who has the greatest impact on my consciousness and feelings”
