after studying sculpture and installation, ailsa cavers aka islas slowly drifted away from the visual arts towards a growing interest in sound. her
artist name is a respectful nod to eliane radigue’s islas resonantes, important ambient work by the pioneering female electronic musician. Islas began crafting long, throbbing sets that bring together delay pedals, ASMR, spoken word, movie scores, and ambient sounds, playing with the friction that exists when one
record meets another, with the joy that erupts when sounds come together to create the previously unheard. Having participated in the creation of belgian dance music label basic moves, and recently co-founding the PLANET collective, islas is now opening up her repertoire to more dance-oriented sets, all the while conserving a passion for sampled and loopy vocals, wonky percussion, intoxicating breaks, and bird sounds.
