Frost has historically carried a profound love for the Canadian music scene. Lydia Ainsworth is one of the new and rising artists from Toronto, Canada that we expect much from, and we are happy to present her on Frost in spectacular settings near the harbor front.
Lydia Ainsworth has secretly been writing and recording songs over the past three years from bedrooms and basements between Toronto and Brooklyn. What began as pass-time sketches between composing music for film and multimedia projects has over time revealed an enchanting collection of experimental pop songs with a life of their own.
Blurring the boundaries between indie music, filmic orchestration, and electronic music, Lydia Ainsworth’s debut, ‘Right From Real’, thrives on haunting melodies and draws inspiration from a wide range of musical sources – Verdi’s Requiem, Ace of Base, Bulgarian Choirs, Bernard Herrmann, Tones on Tail, Art of Noise just to name a few.
The online music journal Pitchfork explained her vision this way in a 7.9-review: “Throughout Right from Real, Ainsworth refuses to ever be only one thing, so by the end of her debut, it’s clear she’s an artist capable of most anything.”
Lydia Ainsworth will be playing together with a drummer, violinist and cellist in the Dome of Visions which is situated at the harbor next to the Royal Library – The Black Diamond. The glass dome is a temporary architectural experiment and is both a music venue and greenhouse. Inside the dome you are both close to the sky and the nature. You will most likely be able to both see and touch the Copenhagen stars on this evening.
Supporting artist will be Nils Gröndahl of Under Byen. As a solo artist Nils Gröndahl masters his violin together with loop effect pedals and creates beautiful yet noisy musical landscapes.
