At the age of 74, Oksana Linde is releasing her first album of songs—recorded over three decades ago. 

Linde, a painter, composer, and collage artist, was born in Venezuela and has earned a reputation as one of the nation's pioneers in the electronic music space. But despite composing for decades, her work has remained unpublished until now.

According to Prog Magazine, Linde was discovered by Luis Alvarado of Buh Records, who said she remains "one of the secret treasures of electronic music in Latin America." Alvarado elaborated that fans of Tangerine Dream or Klaus Schulze are likely to share a special appreciation for Linde's work.

Alvarado's label has signed Linde's debut album Aquatic And Other Worlds, a product of her work from as early as 1983 to as recently as 1989. During that period, Linde, who was in her early 30s, quit her steady job in order to focus on being an artist full-time.
