about

Multi-instrumentalist/producer/songwriter Lynda Arnold has been performing and producing as Divasonic since 2000.

She bounces back and forth between programming, flute, piano, singing and engineering her sounds and arrangements to mold music that is truly her own.

The sound of Divasonic touches many different genres of music and is not easily categorized. Twisted loops mash with straight grooves and synths combine with classically infused flute and keyboard improvisations. Original lyrics derived from her poetry often touch on spiritual themes and her love drama of the moment. Her voice teaches and teases you, winding around the layered textures and with an attractive rawness. Experimentation is key to the development of the Divasonic sound as well as collaboration and performance with other talented musicians in an attempt to redefine the concept of song.

Changing Wind is an outlet for contemplations about relationships, including the ups and downs of “elations, surprises, sensuality, reality, growth, partnership, nurturing, falling in love, and enduring love through its changes.” It also stretches a bit further musically, showing off a stronger jazz influence mixed with stronger soul and pop vibes, all wrapped around the elements Lynda has come to be known for, including drum-and-bass rhythms, experimental percussive sounds, and flute and vocal melodies derived from her own poetry.

Lynda describes the resulting mix as “atmospheric, electronic grooves,” which is hard to deny. It’s not the type of scattered and disjointed effort you might expect from someone with so many different talents and a palette that includes everything from Depeche Mode to Bjork to Tori Amos, and who is joined by a variety of friends and collaborators. Changing Wind displays a cohesive and irresistible feel, whether you want to get up and dance or just sit back and listen. From the infectious rhythms to the haunting melodies, every track stands out as fresh and invigorating.

Changing Wind is released on Lynda Arnold's own label, Digital Bliss Productions.
