What I am really excited about in beginning this journey with Elesvee, is the diversity that people bring to it.
Most of her compositions are melody driven. Playing a lot of cantilena music while growing up made her able to create arrangements where an accompaniment would gracefully surround a melody and make it memorable.Melody is the first element of a piece she hears when listening or composing, and finds it a very important one.
Though her musical tastes were influenced by the world of classical music predominantly, she appreciates all sorts of different music – anything from cool jazz to deep house. “What I am really excited about in beginning this journey with the Elesvee, is the diversity that people bring to it. Just as diverse music can be, everyone involved here has a story to tell, and everyone has different backgrounds. It is always fun to bring talented people together to learn from and create opportunities for one another.”
