"Think of Tatoyan as a baroque Bjork. If her haunting vocals don’t dazzle you, her odd music will — counterposing weird electronics, sound effects and loops with the very organic tones of a French horn and cello.Seeing her is like watching an Escher come to life." kevin Bronson LA times

Biography

Karin is a field of opposites - a private, demur composer of highly sexual and passionate songs. She possesses a tiny stature with a voice the size of the North Atlantic. She writes songs bursting with joy, yearning, wasted hope, and nostalgia for a lost childhood. They seem to skip to their own time like playful children juxtaposing the ugly and the beautiful until they're a new form unto their own.

At only twenty-four, Karin is a veteran of the Los Angeles acoustic scene. She recently removed herself from its strummy environs to concoct the more dynamic and driving electronic sound characteristic of her debut. For her live performances, she has partnered with the multi-instrumentalist The One Second Time Machine as well as a couple classical musicians to create a theatrical, mind-bending act that stands head and shoulders above standard club fare. Think an Armenian-American Björk meets Ziggy Stardust

A spactacular Event of Laughing
YOu are surprised
YOu can't believe it

A particular event marking
the absence of you crying
Oh what a day
To celebrate
You don't find many

Patience is running out
It's slipping out
From under your feet
When you think you're in doubt
You'll figure out

Verse:
Those were monsters you saw
you've gotten good playing
a brick wall
You can't waste
the taste
of nothing at all

Patience is running out
It's slipping out
From under your feet
When you think you're in doubt
You'll figure out
what you really need.
