To characterize a chameleon, “our heroine has known both holy & horrendous”. Her edits reveal the darker sides of the moon most of us think we don’t want to see. Her sets are a collage of her own self: dreamy, strangely healing and infused in mysticism.
Such is the complexity that completes, who creates under the names Courtney Rexach, Zouyina, and Sisters of Z. understands her music as an audio pathway to other realities. We see her as a guide, leading us through a gateway to other galaxies to worlds that are tainted with natural elements and delightfully deranging sounds.
This next podcast in our Urban Cosmonaut Radio series was named “Le Chemin de l’Hiver”: inspired by the growing length of the dark night, the death and re­birth of the seasons and the fire that lit the mountain studio in which this mixtape was created.
A child of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, hailing from LA with roots in Mauguio, France, has selected 25 tracks, none of whom were left untouched by the artist, all of whom reflect her unique flavour.
We leave you now with these words, written by the artist herself in a message to you, the listener:

“My Conversation with the Mountain
goes like listening
grows like lichen
all over her rocky breasts.
My Dance on the Mountain
knows like animal trails
leading through soft brush
shows like swift patterns
Leading through the grass.
From Earth to Sun
From Hips to Lips
My voice will carry
to the canyon of my home.” ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­
