I, A.M. – Artist Mother Project
Olivia De Prato records new works for solo violin and electronics by American women composers who's source of inspiration is Motherhood.
Olivia De Prato records and releases new solo compositions and improvisations by American women artists. Compositions by Olivia De Prato, Jen Baker, Zosha Di Castri, Natasha Diels, Ha-Yang Kim, Pamelia Stickney and Katie Young.
The inspiration and theme for these seven new compositions and improvisations is “Artist and Mother.” The perennial question of whether a woman can be both an artist and a mother has been on my mind for a few years, having started a family myself in 2016. Important as it is, this topic is not often discussed in modern society, especially not in the frenetic environment of New York City. How did this life-changing experience influence our artistic vision and creativity? How do we fit into a society that still believes women must choose between family and art?
