Experimental pop musician and visual artist CLARA-NOVA grew up between Los Angeles and Paris, and as varied as her traveling has been, so is her sound. Jumping from a grittier synth pop to more orchestral leanings, CLARA-NOVA has crafted a dynamic and impressive body of work, with her latest EP The Iron Age due out March 2018. Read on to discover more about Paris in the eyes of CLARA-NOVA.
“Paris has shaped me overall as a person therefore my craft is inspired by the city. As a kid we went to museums and galleries and I unknowingly absorbed the masters. Each street has a story. You can’t help but absorb its history. Sometimes when I walk around the city I record what I hear and it finds its way into my recordings or inspires something I’m working on. A few of my favorite clips are church bells, a woman singing on Rue de Temple, midnight mass NS kids laughing in the park. I keep these recordings as time capsules and listen back to them when I need to be transported somewhere.”
