The music of Galya Bisengalieva is dark and atmospheric. The Kazakh-British composer and violinist centers unyielding drones as she weaves across genres like folk, ambient classical, and electronic music. She released her first two records, EP ONE and EP TWO, on her own NOMAD Music Productions, a label she founded to champion experimental sounds. She recently released her debut album '"Aralkum" on One Little Independent Records. Galya's focus on wide expanses of tone suit the album's subject: the Aral Sea and the desolate landscapes formed from its disastrous shrinking. Galya Bisengalieva has closely collaborated with some of the world's finest musicians spanning many genres including Moor Mother, Pauline Oliveros, Steve Reich, Suzanne Ciani, Laurie Spiegel, Terry Riley, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Mica Levi, Thom Yorke, Sarah Davachi and Actress.
