Ilya Goldberg began training in classical violin at an early age in his birthplace of Perm, Russia. Since moving to the States in 2000 to pursue music full-time, his skill and dedication has guided him on the nomad’s path from the Cleveland Institute of Music to international tours out of his home base in Portland, Oregon.
In the classical realm, Ilya has performed with several Russian and American orchestras, chamber groups, and as a soloist. With over a decade of experience as a chameleonic studio musician on violin, viola, and mandolin he is lauded for his ability to fluidly adapt his improvisational mastery to any genre. Ilya also fills a unique niche by infusing electronic music with classical technique and a sensibility spanning epochs of music. His collaborators include RANDOM RAB, LYNX, RENA JONES, THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE, FUTURE SIMPLE PROJECT and DEVOCHKA. Currently, he performs and works closely with innovative electronic trip-hop producer EMANCIPATOR.
As a producer under the moniker Lapa, Ilya weaves together musical stories with complexly textured harmonies, expansive melodies, and intricately layered beats. His music blurs borders and transcends boundaries, illuminating the resonance of universal forces and teleporting people to wild, dream-like places of serenity and connection.
EarthCry is Anthony Thogmartin of Papadosio’s solo musical project, serving as an outlet for his more eclectic and electronic musical ideas. It is also a launchpad for experimental genre mashing, modular synthesizer wiggling, frequency blending, and odd instrument combinations. Staying true to live roots, an EarthCry show can consist of any combination of live instruments, mixing, slicing, looping, and cutting over arrangements that come out differently every time. All the while, electronic controls are always facing the crowd to encourage a deeper experience of interaction.
