The Brazilian producer releases debut album Home: an intimate synth-pop study of the domestic vs the creative.
Emerging from São Paulo’s contemporary art scene, Laima Leyton makes up Mixhell alongside her husband Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura, Cavalera Conspiracy) and is known for her work with Soulwax.
Home was conceived in 2013, when Leyton moved from Brazil to London, and found herself at home with her children in a cold, alien city while Cavalera was on tour.
Rather than sending him emails, Leyton expressed her feelings through sound files which conjured sonic landscapes of layered synths and ambient sounds.
Inspired by the work of Alejandro Jodorowsky, Bill Viola and Laurie Anderson, her recordings evoked her daily routine – a secret diary uniting a couple often separated by continents.
The resulting album explores the importance of home, motherhood and the love that binds a family together. It asks questions about how the dynamic of a relationship changes when children arrive, and society’s failure to acknowledge its reliance on women’s domestic labour.
