Composer, producer and experimental harpist Nerissa Schwarz has always defied categorisation – both as an acclaimed solo artist and with her band Frequency Drift. Her second solo album “New Eyes for Laika” is a sequence of nine gripping compositions, oscillating between light and shade while stimulating the imagination with its twists and unusual arrangements.

“New Eyes for Laika”, which was inspired by the ambivalent theme of self-aware artificial intelligence, features Schwarz's characteristic innovative harp sounds alongside organic piano and a variety of spacey keyboards. With her creative use of effects pedals, she elicits eerie ambiance, alien percussive noises and heavy, distorted bass notes from her harp, fusing evocative textures, soaring melodic beauty and subtle rhythmic intricacy.
