waltz in, the title of R o n i a’s debut album is both an invitation and a reference to what awaits us on the next 12 songs. Like a traditional waltz, the ¾ time forms the structure of most of the songs on her debut album. The combination of the classically and historically strong ¾ time with modern lo-fi minimalism (all songs are recorded at home without studio equipment) creates a dystopian atmosphere. Still, R o n i a has the ability to bring a certain lightness, sensitivity and even humor to music that is predominantly melancholic. And always there: coincidence, old fairy tale films and Moondog. The soundtracks of classic fairy tale films of the mid-20th century (e.g. Cinderella) have accompanied R o n i a since childhood. With her great role model, Moondog, who has become known as a street musician, she combines a penchant for minimalism and a special way of composing. Coincidence embodies an essential role for recording her music in her 7m² small room. Random noises can influence her music and create new melodies. This often results in minimalist sound figures from piano themes broken down to the bare essentials, carefully used synthesizer surfaces and accents by tuba, trumpet or strings. In the center: the voice of the self-taught R o n i a. Her lyrics ask fundamental questions about human interactions and relationships.
