Aimée Portioli aka Grand River, is an Italian-Dutch composer, producer and sound designer based in Berlin.
Portioli makes experimental electronic music with a cinematic touch. Her work, influenced by minimalism and ambient music, is atmospheric yet rhythmically complex, incorporating a wide range of contemporary compositional and production techniques.
Her unique sound was spotted by Donato Dozzy who released her first EP “Crescente” followed by her debut album ¨Pineapple¨ released on Spazio Disponibile in 2018.
Aimée also runs the record label One Instrument, that aims to challenge artists by ¨limiting¨ them in producing a composition using only one instrument of their choice. She has released works of Donato Dozzy, Neel, Alessandro di Puccio and many more.
She recently contributed with the track ¨This Was Us¨ as part of the compilation released by Ghostly International, Thousands Of Eyes In The Dark, which was improvised solely on a Yamaha DX7.
