About Kedr Livanskiy:
Moscow’s Kedr Livanskiy was born into a shifting and critical time for Russia. The Soviet Union had exhausted and old values were anathematized because of reconstruction. A sense of displacement drove Kedr to find herself. She joined the directing department of Moscow school of New Cinema where she learned to see the world. At the same time, electronic music fascinated her completely and was the same depth that she was looking for.
Kedr and a small circle of friends formed around a mutual interest in music – Inga Copeland, DJ Spin and DJ Rashad, Legowelt, Death Grips, Florian Kupfer, Dean Blunt and it wasn’t long until they organized their own community and DIY label known as John’s Kingdom.
Kedr claims her music is strongly inspired by Autechre, Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada, but also Mazzy Star. She admires contemporaries Inga Copeland and Laurel Halo.
