Somna M. Bulist is a harpist and composer. Her music combines elements of composed music with improvisation, electro-acoustic processing and extended harp techniques in a very personal expression. At once epic and intimate, her work is infused with references to Celtic folklore, the occult and aspects of urban subculture.
Ms. Bulist made her first public appearance at the 1998 Philadelphia Fringe Festival, where she performed her original work for solo harp, "The FAERYE Invocations", and, in the same year, a selection of the pieces were released on her debut CD, "Invocations FAERYE". She premiered her situational work in tribute to the millennium, "44 minutes on the flatline_A Cry for the Millennium", at the 1999 New York International Fringe Festival, a production of The Present Company. In her third Philadelphia Fringe Festival presentation Bulist featured Lillian deNile as the soprano is her dark wave opera, "Valentine Stigmata".
