Carmen Villain



Carmen Villain is Norwegian-Mexican artist and producer Carmen Villain makes atmospheric music made up of tapestries of field-recordings, flute, piano, vocals, zither, programmed drums and synths, culminating in her own distinctive sound combining elements of fourth world ambient, experimental pop with an electro-acoustic vibe. Her new upcoming album 'Both Lines Will Be Blue’ is her third, and first fully instrumental album for Smalltown Supersound. A 7 track collection of cosmic fourth world excursions and dubby ambient jams, the album is written, recorded, played, produced and mixed by Carmen in her Oslo studio.The flute plays an integral part on this album, and is performed by Chilenean-Norwegian flautist Johanna Scheie Orellana (formerly of Sassy 009). Carmen got her in to the studio to both record melodies that she had written, as well as making plenty of room for impro/freeform. This also finds Carmen again collaborating with Prins Thomas, who contributed with percussion on a track. The album follows the acclaimed self-produced Infinite Avenue, her second for Smalltown Supersound following her debut Sleeper in 2013.

Carmen Villain is presented as a part of the We Are Europe program.
