Helen Svoboda: The Odd River

The Odd River is Finnish-born Melbourne-based bassist vocalist composer Helen Svoboda’s surreal musical evocation of the collision of organic and inorganic, of the natural and unnatural.

Her driving inspiration is her environment, she is struck by the weirdness of what we have done to natural world – and happily admits to being obsessed with finding uncustomary sounds, and ways of playing her instrument. Her album under the same moniker has attracted critical international attention.
