KOY is the transoceanic solo odyssey of St. Petersburg (RUS) born, Berlin-based composer Victoria Trunova. Raised in Germany, KOY has lived in and moved between Berlin (GER), Helsinki (FI), Oslo (NO) and Bergen (NO). Along the way, KOY has collected eclectic sonic traces and technicolour aesthetics that travel with her sound. Science-fictional soundscapes meet maniacal lyrics to create an ethereal other-world of which KOY reigns alien queen supreme.
Inspired by both a wild hybrid and complete denial of fixed nationalities, KOY never meshed with the idea of identity built on genetic inheritance. Instead she opts to create a fluid, cross cultural musical space where we can overcome borders – to be able to feel “homeless” and just at home simultaneously.
