Human life is full of splendid contraddictions. Animals are simple. A rock is simple or a tree, or the snow & even the fire. All they can teach us something, in silence or through violence. Words come harder sometimes, sounds are instinctive. I stay between the dark and the hybrid white, deeply in love with the colours, sometimes fighting & screaming, sometimes running away, sometimes simply whispering, dancing in Nature's womb, rediscovering my roots while searching for my future. I don't believe in miracles but in the enigma of rites & rituals, still alive in the arts. I hate tragedy but I know it's necessary. We have the sublime task to transform it, burning & burning & burning... I am the Dyonis' lover...
Electronic emotions & dark rhythms live in harmony in me, so as the passion for all the arts. Much of all this is already in the ELVEN project. However, I needed to speak my own language. So I started alone, when ELVEN wasn't even an idea.
2004: Poison Ivy meets CaranD'ache & gothic-black metal band Darkmind, both temporary experiences for Ivy as a singer. Oct.'04: Darkmind changes members, style & name: ELVEN meet Poison Ivy. At the same time POISON IVY becomes a serious one-girl project.
DISCOGRAPHY: "Experiments" 2005 - "Not Enough Words" 2006 - "Black Angels On White Devils" 2008
The third album sounds a little bit different, thanks to the collaboration with Andy (guitarist/male voice in ELVEN). A harder & deeper sound - that's what I mean for my words, my visions, my music, right now, even now, after a long break during 2009 - 2011 (very inspired but busy years for us both)…
IVPI are happy to announce our forthcoming album - stay tuned for some preview!
Also: IVPI're in a great team right now, working on a new concept - "TIME" , composing an ambitious soundtrack for a unique artistic event in Sept.'13
