Green-House is the project of Los Angeles based artist Olive Ardizoni.
Approaching the project with an intentional naivety, they craft songs that find freedom through simplicity. As a non-binary artist, they hope to create a space with fewer barriers as both a performer and a listener.
Their first release as Green-House, Six Songs for Invisible Gardens, was written with the intention of transforming the listening environment and augmenting domestic space. The music is designed as a communication with both plant life and the people who care for them.
The intention of this piece was to evoke the process of bud, to flower, to transcendence. The melody comes in to note the first sign of spring and moves into the swell of the growth of the bud then the piece moves back and fourth as they swell and separate, revealing its center as it finally blooms, spreading its seeds and then gently closing and returning back to the earth.
Deep listening is the somatic experience of listening, feeling the physical movements of a piece and feeling the stillness. much like looking at a picture and allowing yourself to be swept away with the emotion of the piece rather than allowing the intellect to overpower the moment.
