Aurelia sprung from the mind of New York born producer, vocalist, and visual artist Gabriella Bavaro, conjured up a world of electronic and experimental music that is bolstered by her eclectic background of classical instrumentation, opera, and world influenced rhythms.
The project has been in development for the past 2 years, sparked into reality after a suicide attempt/hospitalization and being diagnosed with PTSD. Gabriella, who then picked up Ableton and began songwriting in 2019, took to sound with a fullness and intentionality that has seen immense growth.
An avid classical scholar, "Aurelia" was a way to encapsulate Renaissance humanistic ideology, and the Plotinian ascent of the soul. Her creations, both as a photographer and producer, have worked with an intent to use art as both a personal healing process and a way to illuminate darker issues that have more often plagued women and LGBTQ+ youth. Aurelia combines this classical mysticism with an electronic orchestration, to capture what it might be like for each person to feel reborn, a work of art amidst the stars.
The past few years have seen Aurelia rise to become a full scale production powerhouse, with writing and production credits for notable independent acts such as Icarus Moth and Ehiorobo, as well as larger corporations like Coca Cola and ShareNow for commercial work.
2021 will focus on Aurelia’s debut self-produced single, “Wax” which features production collaborations of Aurelia and Sindrum.
