'Geist's music has the power to open doors. Her enchanting sounds are always an invitation to explore the most concealed nooks of our own perception.' - Phonica
Eva Geist is an electronic artist who dedicated her life to poetry. Educated as a classic piano player and singer and trained as a live performer and sound designer, Eva found important references in the Neukoelln art community of Berlin. Here in 2015, in a bar that doesn’t exist anymore called Del Rex, Eva played her first live set, something in between a dancing session and a concert.
Later she became one of the paramount artists of Macadam Mambo, the label run by Sacha Mambo in Lyon. Since 2016 she’s been a resident at Sameheads, where, together with Laura ODL (Ondula), she hosts the night called Diapason. They also form the duo As Longitude, which first EP, “Blauer Part”, was released in 2017 by Knekelhuis. Often depicted as a storyteller, Eva interprets her creation as a gentle flow, chapter by chapter, into a cinematic soundscape imbued with psychedelic fluids, magic and spiritual nostalgia.
"...a slow, slippery take on coldwave techno touched up with acid and faintly arabesque melodies... a mysterious sound" - Pitchfork
Her influences can be found in new age music, synth pioneers, krautrock, tribal dance, Italo disco and synth-pop. Her recent EP Urban Monogamy, released by Hivern Discs in 2018, has gained visibility in the club world and enhanced her interest in sequenced beats and rhythmical arpeggiators. 2020 saw the birth of »Il Quadro di Troisi«, a project by Andrea Noce (Eva Geist) and Donato Scaramuzzi (Donato Dozzy) on the seminal Raster imprint. The record is a colourful ode of an Italian-scented vision overflowing with details and profound intensity. The contemporary world condition, the pandemic in Italy and around the world defined »Il Quadro di Troisi« as a unique and right-on-time release.
