Interview with Rivita

For my readers who are only now being introduced to your music, can you describe your sound and influences?
Hey to everyone reading this, I am an Electro-pop singer-songwriter, music producer, composer and film-maker! I am influenced by a lot of things; a lot of times and places influence my sound too. My recent music is influenced a lot by my recent trip to China. I mainly write pop music, but with an alternative touch of Eastern sounds.

You’ve had a pretty extensive music education, what’s been your favourite area of music to explore so far?
I love researching and learning more about music, as much as I enjoy performing and creating it. My favourite area is definitely music technology and production; it is a fast moving industry with new inventions coming up every day. It is exciting to keep on top of new techniques.

You’ve been quite busy over the past few years, winning awards and getting your work internationally recognised, as well as producing other people’s music. What’s been the highlight of your career so far?
The highlight of my career has definitely been, branching out from music into making music videos. I think this gave me full freedom to express my vision to the audiences. Filming and editing videos is quite rewarding, the whole experience has opened up my music to a new set of listeners.

You recently released the new video for your track While The Love Is Gone, can you tell us a bit about it?
To me, the video has a sense of “moving forward”, I have documented my travels in the video and it kind of gives a sense of going places, rather than being stuck in the same mundane place – emotionally and physically really. I wanted the video to really express what I wanted to say with the song, while leaving room for interpretation by the listener, I am quite happy how the video turned out eventually! The video also features, dance group – Mahamaya Group of Fusion Dance. I have been collaborating with them for some time now and it is amazing how well they are able to translate my music into dance moves. I won’t tell you anymore because I want you to head over to YouTube and watch the video for yourself now!!

Any performances or new releases we can look forward to?
I am going to be releasing my debut EP this year, we are just in the midst of finishing up the production and it has been super exciting and stressful. You can expect the announcement about the EP sometime soon via my social media. I also frequently release live performance videos of my original songs and covers on my YouTube.
