  On May 1 2022 Russian pianist Julia Perminova has released her second piano solo album called “Way to My Star” in collaboration with a young painter Liza Perminova.

  “Way to My Star” is a creative project run by two close-knit talented sisters with distinctive personalities, who have both been fascinated by space since childhood. As fate would have it, they live in different countries now. They were born in a small Siberian town surrounded by endless coniferous forests under a clear starlit sky. The girls would often watch celestial bodies together, and when their family got a small telescope, they became even keener on astronomy. It inspired their creativity. The elder sister, pianist Julia, wrote music pieces named “Venus”, “Mars”, “The Moon”, etc. while studying at the music school. Sometime later, her younger sister Liza began painting original cosmic style pictures.

  Being talented and determined, the sisters have always been moving forward. Julia Perminova lives in Switzerland now, successfully participating in several music projects involving famous jazz musicians. A year ago she released a debut solo album “Imagination” comprising cinematic piano pieces dedicated to her travels. The album has gripped its listeners’ hearts, and Julia decided to continue writing pieces in the same style. Liza Perminova lives and studies in Moscow painting pictures that never leave her fans untouched.

  Each being a professional in her own field, pianist Julia is an art appreciator and artist Liza is a music lover. Inspired by each other’s work they decided to set up a collaborative project. The idea of the project is to combine music and visual art and to immerse the audience into the atmosphere of distant and unexplored worlds of the Universe.

  “Way to My Star” album envelops you from the first seconds. A variety of light and bright improvisational passages combined with experiments in modern jazz harmony and synthesized sound effects reflect the charming beauty and depth of the cosmic world.

  The music helps you forget everyday worries and fills your imagination with colorful images, incredible scenery, bringing up a wide range of emotions with diverse palette of sound colors: from bright to sad ones, from restless to serene. The album visual art is by painter Liza Perminova. Her bright cosmic watercolors can be found both on the cover and inside the CD package.
