John Cratchley I'm new to Holly Herndon's music,so these are initial observations: her music feels very human although it is laptop generated...about the human condition,about using technology to express humanity (the track 'breathe' is a perfect example).There is a cerebral quality too (I feel a strong sense of composition here:thought-through work where conscious decisions have been made).I don't know why,but her music reminds me a lot of Meredith Monk (not stylistically but in approach,perhaps).I know a new album is imminent,so this represents where Holly Herndon was (not is now) but I think she is in for the long haul and that her musical world will forever advance and bring technology closer to humanity.

about

Holly Herndon’s Movement is the debut offering of material by the young musician, modernist, and machinist.

Restless for reckless cultural immersion, Herndon left her Johnson City, Tennessee home as a teenager for Berlin, Germany. For several years, Herndon lived and learned techno music as party dweller and performer, eventually returning wide-minded to the States to pursue a Masters in Electronic Music at Mills College. Under the guidance of network pioneer John Bischoff, Roscoe Mitchell, and Maggi Payne, Herndon pursued her experiments with processed voice and explored embodiment in electronic music, earning the Elizabeth Mills Crothers award for best composer in 2011.

Started at the end of Herndon’s studies, Movement is a test chamber that hybridizes her modern composition training and undying devotion to club music. To this extent, the influences of Maryanne Amacher and Galina Ustvolskaya are as prevalent in Herndon’s music as Pan Sonic and Berlin and Birmingham 90s techno. Still, in line with pop deconstructionists Laurie Anderson and Art of Noise, Movement is purposefully positioned to reach new ears beyond a niche.
