Aimée Portioli (a.k.a Grand River), the Berlin-based Dutch-Italian composer and sound designer, will release her third album on Editions Mego.

All Above follows 2020’s Blink A Few Times To Clear Your Eyes and 2018’s Pineapple released on Donato Dozzy and Neel‘s Spazio Disponibile imprint. Written over the last two years, it’s the “most ambitious and divergent” set of music Portioli has assembled so far, with a wide variety of instrumentation (including voices, strings, organs, guitars, and synthesisers) focused around the piano. But while that instrument isn‘t always heard, it‘s constantly at the forefront of the album, “shepherding its emotions and anchoring its mood,” we’re told.

Portioli operates in a unique space within the electronic music scene, straddling the art world and the wider electronic music realms. You can read more about her and her work in her XLR8R interview here.
