Jarmila’s album ‘Aspaklaria’ - I’m going to be telling you about it, cause there is plenty to tell both about her and her music. There is so much to see, read and most of all to listen to.

‘Try to get good big speakers to listen to this album… there’s a lot in the production of it… wonderfully fruity synthesizers, great textures, layers and layers of it, a big overall thing…’

Jarmila's ‘musical metaphysics’ in her ‘seductive ethereal garden of sounds and timbres' as reported by the Polish Radio Dla Ciebie
‘… beautiful, ethereal CD of effective dichotomies - even the songs, sounding simultaneously innocent and experienced, also function as huge, wide-opened soundscapes’. RnR Magazine
‘… przepiękna, nieziemska płyta skutecznych dychotomii - nawet piosenki, brzmiące zarazem niewinnie jak i wytrawnie, funkcjonują jednocześnie jako potężne, szeroko otwarte pejzaże dźwiękowe’. RnR Magazine
Jarmila's 'musical pearls' from Aspaklaria on Polish Radio 3
‘It is in this clear lens of Aspaklaria that Jarmila was able to focus the magic of her other-worldly voice with pulsating beats and the incredible, electronically shaped sound expanse… Phenomenal voice…’
‘Wciągający, eteryczny ogród dźwięków i brzmień, zjawiskowy głos…’
all those genres and none of the above
Calling Jarmila’s songs ‘musical pearls’, Wojciech Ossowski presents her music from Aspaklaria in his programme Trojkowy Ossobowy on Polish Radio Trojka.
'WHY WAS I COMPARED TO THE IBN EZRA? WHO IS HE?'
What is certainly typical of Jarmila’s music is that it is positively atypical. Like other critics before him, in his review of Jarmila’s album Aspaklaria, Haydon Benfield proposes several different genres in his attempt to classify her style. Art-pop, electronica, experimental, adult-contemporary, jazz, IDM all end up thrown into this cocktail shaker, but ultimately he confesses…

‘Jarmila Xymena Gorna is like a musical polymath. She’s a bit like the Ibn Ezra, and although he is a medieval Torah commentator and she’s a modern musician - so there’s quite a gap between them, but in a way it’s very much the same kind of ability to do many, many, many things well, all at the same time without seemingly specialising in one, being super confident in all of them...’

LIFTMUSIC FEATURES JARMILA
In 2006 I was invited to take part in the exhibition titled 'Childhood Memories' at the V&A Museum of Childhood in London. I chose to recall how, as a child, I constructed my first 'recording studio', where I was able to execute basic tracking and layering of different parts. I used my sister's old Grundig reel to reel and my own new little Grundig tape recorder to do that. Actually, the museum couldn't find a Grundig, so a prop was used!
‘Gorna’s choice of title for her debut album was a very conscious thought. The creative process is universally fascinating and resolutely difficult to nail down. The title she chose Hashgachah translates from Hebrew as meaning divine synchronicity; those “magic moments from above”. It is easy to hear how the sublime wordless communication of Silver Bird was born from this spiritual inspiration’.
