Gisela Fullà-Silvestre formed the alias NOIA to create separation between her profession as a celebrated composer and mix engineer for film and TV, and her experimental pop productions. After graduating from Berklee, the Barcelona-bred artist relocated to Brooklyn and started writing music that channeled her early attachments to sound, which were formed osmotically as a child in the home of her activist parents. Shortly thereafter, she released her inaugural EP, Habits, which was a lush, romantic affair anchored by singles “Nostalgia Del Futuro” and “Itaca Tropical.” Her LP debut, gisela has been praised by Pitchfork, NPR, NY Times and Stereogum. Structured to unfold like a dream, it combines an array of languages—Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, English—and traditional sounds from her childhood in southwestern Europe to process her personal transformations over the past two years. Glitch and hyperpop productions and field recordings were also central to the creation process. Everywhere Gisela went, so did a recording device—dinners with friends, weekends in the park, voicemails, city sounds. The resulting body of work is deeply autobiographical, yet instantly recognizable. The context uniquely NOIA’s, but the stuff of life visits us all. Find her on Instagram and Spotify!
