Meet Julianna Barwick

So I recently got my hands two releases by Louisianian-turned-Brookylnite Julianna Barwick, and they have me hypnotized. The first thing I heard by her was her first official release, “Sanguine“. It’s a short album of all vocal loop-based songs. According to her website, “Sanguine serves as an intimate group of melodies displayed through the minimal tools of a 4 track, a loop pedal, and a beautiful voice”. It also mentions that many of her songs are improvised during the recording process and many were written “on the fly”. Maybe this is why her music attracts me so much, given I’ve been implementing a similar recording and songwriting method as of late. Today, I got a copy of her most recent record, “Florine” and I was reminded again of my appreciation of this musician and of her music’s existence.

Check out the song “Unt 3” to get a feel for her music (this is from her first album, Sanguine).

Here’s a recording of her playing live at KSCR Radio on November 18, 2009.
