Anita Andreis is a New Zealand-based artist, music producer, singer-songwriter and award-winning composer renowned for her works in the field of film music. She has worked on a variety of films, TV, theatre and ballet productions, both independent and commercial; and has won three Best Film Music Awards for her musical scores.
After moving to New Zealand in late 2019, Anita’s voice and expression went through a substantial transformation. The impact of New Zealand on her creativity was first reflected in a brighter and more colourful tone and themes prevalent in her new music before it gradually shifted and expanded from auditive to visual arts. Her artworks range – from – seascapes and space – to – sacred geometry.
Film music critics describe Andreis’s music as “from haunting melancholic, ethereal expression to the dense orchestral textures with a brutal sound, she creates emotional and intellectual depths with a subliminal power that plunges into the narrative character of the film”.
Her songs defy categorisation due to unusual stories and sound, quirky musical arrangements and complex structures, causing reviewers to describe them as „orchestral, ambient, indie, dark pop and art rock all at the same time“.
My SEASCAPES are inspired by my new life in New Zealand. Living close to the beach, I’m a daily witness to the ocean’s various moods, shapes and colours. From tranquillity to unpredictability, it provides an endless source of inspiration; and a singularly nuanced perspective on the infinite, immortal phenomenon that is the ocean.
