The classical music world can be a rich, fulfilling experience.
However, it can also be suffocating. Hannah Schneider's familial roots lie in classical composition, in an atmosphere dominated by conservatories, rules and regulations.
But then she rebelled. The Danish artist has a bohemian streak, a free-thinking philosophy which pushes past any boundaries placed in her way.
"It's been a huge conflict, and I've always been extremely sensitive" she explained. "I let everything in the room affect me, but I'm not, like, this nice little quiet girl. I'm incredibly temperamental and I'll go home and smash things. And when it comes to music, I'm always making all these drastic decisions."
Infusing her music with an incredible sense of drama, Hannah Schneider uses this to fuel new album 'Red Lines'.
Due to be released on October 27th, the record will be preceded by new cut 'Dreaming Kind'. At times close to folk music, her acoustic lilt is matched to a searingly modernist approach.
Continually pushing ahead, Hannah Schneider may well be the 'Dreaming Kind' but she's also a provocative, pioneering artist.
