Louisa Krátká is known in Guelph for her work in the visual arts, especially in the realm of paper and books. She is also an original musician who blends her haunting voice with minimalist instrumentation. From the first plucked note of her violin the listener is captivated, and remains immersed as her honest, pensive voice sings in a language that may be unfamiliar to most, but is recognizable in its warmth and emotion. Her original songs, written and sung mostly in the Czech language, are soothing, searching, atmospheric melodies woven with dreams and lullabies.
Collaborating with Louisa on video projections is local musician and VJ, Andrew Hopkinson. Andrew studied music composition, and has worked in the field of video projecting since the early 2000s, developing a unique toolkit of hardware and software mixers and visualizers that enable live video improvisation and provide the tools to push the boundaries of this art form.
