New (Double) Single this December!
My Blog, Instagram and Atelier are currently offline whilst I create behind the scenes. I'll be in touch!
I am Lavinia Valeriana, from the home of castles Warwick and Kenilworth, South Warwickshire. The birthplace of (attention shy) me and (some) influences such as William Shakespeare and Aleister Crowley. I am Latin European and Celt, a variegated blend of Italian, Catalan-Basque, French-Breton, and then some, moulded here in Leamington Spa and yonder, all the way to Greece. Thus, amongst my work, you will find multilingualism and Hellenic/Religio-Romana and Celtic influence. What is my work? Well, I'm a Gothic-Romantic Avant-Garde Bardic Musician and an instrumental dream and dark ethereal Audio Painter. Painting, with sound, what I call 'my petit-macabre/or whimsical Commedia dell'arte shorts.' A Confessional Poet/Diarist and an Artisan/Sculptor/Artist tightly wound to my diverse heritage. My headphone music has intentional imperfections and an antiqued/vintage aesthetic with a cylinder phonograph or gramophone presentation. I'm entirely self-taught, which began as a harpsichordist from age six, developing in various period styles but taking a more Doctor Frankenstein root. I'm behind it all, notwithstanding, completely deaf in my right ear, which is rather fun. An abstruse creature? Yes, living La Vie Bohème and loving it before I give up the ghost, always cultivating in the shadows, away from modern convention, but happy to share with all and embrace all who do me. Wander over to my store and enjoy a few gifts, gratis. Et voilà! You're most welcome. Come, feast upon the Psilocybin Mushrooms of my polymathy.
