Compositions, Theremin, Performances
For Olea Nova composing paintings and music are two parallel processes where articulation of space is one of the important aspects. She embraces dissonance and polyphony, focuses on vectors of movement and speed of sounds, that are tactile and spacious, through air and time.

Recording started on March 21, 2020 after the shelter-in-place order started in Chicago. “WORLD” opens with the piece I titled ‘Before’ because I recorded it with sounds set on my instruments prior the shelter order. Since the order, I have recorded one sound piece every day for three weeks. The idea behind “WORLD” was to record one sound piece every day as a sound ‘impression’ of each day. I documented my process on Instagram (March 21-April 12, 2020) by posting a fragment of a live recording session from each day. The process consisted of several hours programming and choosing sounds for the day to play on my synthesizers: their order, dynamics and overall mix. Then I played each piece in three takes. Later, during the mastering stage, which took four weeks, I picked a take for each day and put them together in this album.
