about

'Daniela Orvin is a Berlin/Tel Aviv based musician and artist. She was born in Berlin and grew up in Ismaning (near Munich) and Herzliya (Israel).
Daniela has an academic background of art and photography and after graduating, she co-founded 'd&a Gallery for Contemporary Photography' in Tel Aviv. Aside from her studies, Orvin has been playing the piano since she was six years old and since moving back to Berlin at the end of 2012, she has been concentrating on writing her own music.

Recently she started composing for short films and also wrote music for a documentary made by polish filmmaker Kamil Markiewicz, which will premiere later this year in Berlin. For the second release on the Seasides on Postcards, we're pleased to present Daniela's debut album 'Home'.

A prevailing theme in Daniela's various exhibitions and art projects is uprootedness as for many years she had been searching for a place she could call home. She eventually found this but not in a physical place but rather in music. The moment she was reunited with her piano four years ago, after a long break since adolescence she became overwhelmed with a feeling of returning 'home'. She realised that home does not need to be a physical place that can be touched but rather, a feeling or abstract such as music, which has no boundaries. So this aptly titled album is celebrating the discovery of her chosen home of music.

The album begins with the lo-fi sounds of Daniela practising Bach, which is part of a daily piano practice ritual and it opens to invite the listeners into her personal space.'

'[...] What is more it’s nice to hear electronic music with a heart and dare I say it, a bit of kindness and this definitely has both. A lovely release.'

'[...] Her pieces of music are beautiful and open, glowing like an effervescent sunset and then filling the room with the light of the morning to come. You can feel the reunion, the tight relationship, and what it means to her. [...]'

'[...] This album has got so under my skin that I can’t let it go. I have listened to it no end of times, each listen catching something new, some little detail, something fresh within the warming, comforting whole. I can’t wait to listen again. [...]'

'[...] Wahre akustische Kunst, welche unter die Haut geht. Ein Album, welches sehr tiefgründig aus der empfindsamen Seele von Daniela Orvin erzählt. Und dafür gebührt der Dame Anerkennung wie ebenso Respekt.'

'[...] At times it’s classical chillout music but built from synthwave-style ingredients, and it really works. The modest duration perhaps works in its favour. Orvin has been doing soundtrack work recently and on this evidence, her work should soon be in demand.'

'[...] Sogar der mittlerweile fast mit Langeweile-Versicherung ausgelieferte „Neoklassik“-Tag kann im Dazwischen noch an Licht und Schatten gewinnen. Zum Beispiel in ganz besonders schön, wenn die Berliner Musikerin und Fotografin Daniela Orvin auf ihrem Debütalbum Home (Seasides On Postcards) den Ballast abwirft, der mit dem spieltechnischen Können an ihrem bevorzugten Instrument dem Piano üblicherweise so mittransportiert wird und stattdessen die Klavierklänge in warmen Synthesizerflächen verhallen lässt.

'[...] Prelude (Part 1) nous invite ainsi d’emblée dans l’intimité de la pianiste au son du premier prélude du Clavier Bien Tempéré de Bach, un exercice qui se fond bientôt dans l’écho d’accords au spleen rêveur, tandis que Surrendering To Coincidence prend forme à partir de simples gammes soumises là encore à des effets d’écho qui finissent par leur donner une dimension presque irréelle... l’écho, un élément décidément central sur ce très bel album, jusqu’à son final kosmische Home aux chaleureux élans de retour au bercail.'

'[...] Sanfte, oft zurückgenommene Tonfolgen auf dem Piano, die repetitiven Mustern folgen und sich oft nur dezent und nahezu unbemerkt in ihrer Melodik verändern, erinnern bisweilen an die eingängigen Kompositionen von Michael Nyman oder Philip Glass. Ambient? Synthieflächen, schön gestaltet und glasklar, fügen sich manchmal nahtlos in das Klavierspiel und ersetzen es an anderer Stelle, in besonderen Momenten wachsen sie mit viel Hall unterlegt zu orchestraler Wucht an. Pop? Eine dauerpräsente Leerstelle auf “Home”, denn dieser wird immer wieder gestreift, von einprägsamen Melodien und netten Soundarrangements, und doch bleiben die Stücke immer nur auf Songbausteinen basierende Soundscapes. [...]'

'[...] It is the strength of Orvin’s composition that very few of the tracks stand out, but instead work together to form an exceptionally cohesive whole. Each instrument – the piano, and the synths and occasionally percussive or vocal noises that frame them – is so well-crafted that what results is a rich and convincing sound world, and one that is endowed with a near romantic, restrained sorrow.
