BONAVENTURE

Bonaventure uses music as an identity research tool along with practical and speculative initiatives to connect her African and European roots and investigate human relationships. Her compositions are expressive and intuitive, her palette takes form within complex and often contradictory influences -charged elements that achieve a distinct balance while continually testing boundaries. She is being admitted into the ranks of the more progressive International club nights, such as Janus x NON XCHANGE at Berghain Säule, CREEPY TEEPY Festival in Prague, the 404RCE night in Club ALL, Shanghai, Moogfest held in Durham, NC and H0l0 PTP night in NYC—sharing the bill with artists like Princess Nokia, LSDXOXO, Dinamarca, M.E.S.H., FAKA and Yves Tumor.

With a background in graphic design, Bonaventure has shifted her attention using both club and institutional spaces as a primary place of artistic research and experimentation. Yet, her formal design training can be seen in both her DJ sets and her productions, which assemble potent and uncompromising elements in close proximity in order to create a new sonic language.
