I travel with
and within my voice.
I bite into silence,
open my mouth
and let it go

Alternating between the indie rock scene –with five albums released to great acclaim – and her work in the field of experimental sound, Ainara LeGardon (Bilbao, 1976) has forged a career that is the logical result of an intense personal and artistic distilling process spanning more than two decades.

Whether she’s accompanying her songs with a rhythm section, improvising solo or as part of projects such as Archipiel, La Criatura or Colectivo maDam, Ainara aims to strip the music of any accessories to unleash its full expressive potential while bringing new sounds together. This austerity in form allows her to calibrate intensity and shape silence in fine detail and with intent. Why limit something to being a song when every possible sound can be embodied?

Ainara offers a voyage in real time, where she is the path to be taken and the landscape arises from the delicate balance between light and shadow, strength and frailty, fear and truth. The organic and the instinctive come together, conjuring every possible world and emotion we are capable of, intimate and imaginary, personal and universal.

At the same time, her teaching work in the field of Arts Management and Intellectual Property and her commitment to independence have made Ainara LeGardon a reference artist in constant evolution.

Every Minute

Every Minute

The Journey as leitmotif. No journey in particular but all those that made me who I am.

Close to the cold and water. The ice.

Conversations imagined on a train. Glancing out of the window. Answers set in the reflection as we speed into the darkness of a tunnel.

Lives I won’t live. Lives I’ve lived. Minutes I promise never to waste again.

The need to savour certain memories before they fade to white.

We make choices, no one leaves unscathed.

Now we are ready.

We once wished
Forgive me if I don´t come home to sleep tonight
Each Day a Lie
In the mirror
La Gallera suena

(Digital. Audiotalaia 2014)
