Mesmerizing melodies, plush harmonic textures and panoptic soulful inspirations are just a few words that best describe the music of Leslie Loh.
In a world of ever advancing digital technology, it is refreshing to see an artist that glorifies tradition and the beauty of musical instruments. Rather than solely employing electronic means, her compositions exude a luscious symphonic sound and the layering of her vulnerable yet poignant voice with the various instruments, sometimes ethnic, coupled with pulsating beats, enthralls.
“Contrast is beauty.” Leslie says. “I marry things that are unexpected. Contrast creates magic, be it colour, texture, sounds, style, etc., and contrast makes the best harmony. Just look at our Earth, between the oceans and the continents, I’m simply doing what’s natural. It brings out the beauty of one another.”
Deeply versed in both classical and contemporary conventions, her effortless art shines for all to see. The development of her unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical influences. Growing up in a talented musical family meant that Leslie was always surrounded by different forms of music.
