Chikiss (RU) live
Galina Ozeran more known as Chikiss is a singer-songwriter, composer, producer, DJ and synth diva. Born in Belarus, spending 15 years in St.-Petersburg and now based in Berlin since 2015. Having released her first album in 2003, Galina Ozeran has created numerous wide-ranging projects, from contemporary piano and electro-acoustic pieces to nostalgic synth-pop songs, noise-rock and trippy electronic avant-garde material – all as a solo artist and in collaboration with others.
Chikiss is a child of soviet era sci-fi, tinted by the faded glory of suggested futures that never came to be.
Her performance draws on nostalgic futurism, both brand new and nodding to obscure numbers by long forgotten, and little known internationally soviet acts.
Armed with encyclopediac knowledge of early synth recordings, depicting mischievous romantic mechanical dreams brought into life by analogue machines.
