Dora Bleu explores intimate experience as the place where the capitalist war state replenishes itself. Her work is neither fully composed nor improvisational. The songs follow their own inner sense of narrative time, and are simultaneously tonal and atonal. The guitar is sparse, tense, suggestively melodic, sometimes dissonant. The vocals contribute to uneven compositions filled with stark silences and bent notes. The songs intend to violate the concept of genre, to infuse storytelling and text with trauma, vulnerability and the raw and unprotected.
She is currently working on a collaboration of recordings with Periklis Tsoukalas (Baba Zula, Diamanda Galas.) Recent releases include a full length LP with Tom Carter (Charalambides) and Sam Shalabi (Shalabi Effect, Land of Kush, GYBE) on Tequila Sunris/Fire Museum and on Nostress Netlabel with Olga Nosova and Alexei
Borisov (Notchnoy Prospekt). Prior releases are on VHF, Camera Obscura, Ikuisuus, Three Legged Cat and others.
