Sign Libra is the moniker of a Latvian musician Agata Melnikova. Her debut album Closer to the Equator (originally released on Sounds of the Dawn, and then Antinote) is a modern new age synthesis of a tropical rainforest microcosm, inspired by nature documentary series. Melnikova’s sophomore album Sea to Sea, released in 2020 via Brooklyn label RVNG Intl., explores an imaginary nature of the so-called “seas“ on the Moon’s surface, known collectively as lunar maria. Combining research with childlike imagination, Sign Libra’s work approaches man’s relationship with nature with a keen sense of humor and playfulness.
