I am a classically trained musician, born and raised in Latvia. I moved to live in UK at the age of 25. Music, world politics and what it is to be a human being remain central to my interests and I seek to combine these in my projects. Music is my primary field of creation - I compose and teach music, but sometimes I feel the need, hesitantly but passionately, to cross into the world of filmmaking. I work mostly on my own and on a small budget.
Art, poetry and pacifist beliefs continue to inspire my personal vision. With my musical compositions and films I wish to make a small contribution towards the idea/practice of tearing down the physical and imaginary borders that seek to keep us divided. My work often exceeds the form of the traditional genres, which perhaps could be seen as another step towards the idea of tearing down the walls of separation.
