Her solo project, NV, mines the far corners of Japanese new wave, bubble gum, and blissedout electronica to form mastercrafted experimental pop gems.
Kate NV draws inspiration from a wide range of influences, from japanese pop from 80’s to concrete music and contemporary classic.Through her freeform compositional skills, the listener can see the multilayered and eclectic soundscapes. Kate NV paints a sonic sound arrangement with every track she lays down.
Her album Binasu (Orange Milk Records/ MIND records/2016, PLANCHA) is a revelatory reflection of her perception of the world and her inner state of mind.
Her last album was released in June 2018 on NYC based record label RVNG intl.
Artist and composer, Valérie Vivancos aka Ocean Viva Silver, sailed the Anglo-Saxon artistic and musical undercurrents of Liverpool, Manchester, London, San Francisco and NYC for 11 years before settling in Paris. Her artistic practice revolves around composition, performance scores, situations and writing protocols that interweave life and fiction and trigger 'curious' experiences.
