UK-born, raised with Czech roots, and currently working out of Berlin, Emika rose to critical acclaim through album and club releases encompassing bass, dubstep, and techno music, crossing styles and genres in her own very distinct cutting-edge pop sound. She now presents a unique and compelling record of solo piano pieces, offering an almost voyeuristic portrait of her creative process. Klavirni is an album that seeps gently into the soul without demanding unnecessary effort from the listener. It provides a personal, raw, unpolished, and captivating glimpse into the pure essence of artistic endeavor; Emika offers an intimate look into the fundamental process that lies at the core of not just this latest body of work but of the artist as an individual, recalling, "I stayed a few weeks at my parents' home in Milton Keynes in Dec13/Jan14. My favorite piano is there from my childhood, the piano that I did all my grades on. That piano has been the most important instrument in my whole life." A piano diary based on improvisation, the album can be described as "futuristic classical," with piano miniatures recorded precisely as if the listener were sitting behind the piano, and then sampled, stretched, splashed with echoes, and reversed in Emika's homemade Berlin studio. Emika Records continues on its self-chartered journey with a personal, warm, inviting, and moving record from this creatively thriving and enduring talent. CD edition includes email address from which purchasers can request a free copy of the score.
