Marta SmiLga

Marta SmiLga is the project of Liga Smirnova, a Riga-based musician who lives for electronic music. Since early childhood, her main interests have been music and astronomy, but doing in-depth research of electroacoustic music at Jazeps Vitols Latvian Academy of Music and becoming a member of the "Erica Synths" team consolidated her deep passion for sound synthesis and music made using only a "synthetical" sound material. This inspired her to start making her own electronic music compositions in an experimental ambient genre and to perform live.

Although a newcomer to electronic music, she has already released music on labels like Liminal Noise, Crash Symbols, and Blind Allies, as well as participated in a number of European festivals dedicated to synthesizers and electronic music.

Using her collection of electronic music instruments, mostly modular and keyboard synthesizers, she generates immersive cosmic soundscapes. Sometimes they drag you into their gravitational field, like matter into a black hole. Sometimes they take you to some unknown galaxies far away, full of shimmering stars.
