Sound Horizon: Julianna Barwick

“Her ethereal multi-tracked harmonies have the devotional quality of gospel choirs, and the oddball allure of Björk or Yoko Ono.” —New York Times

Brooklyn-based experimental looper Julianna Barwick turns the Perlman Gallery into a sonic sanctuary with her soaringly beautiful vocal soundscapes. Her post-millennial ambient soundscape, an alternately ethereal and ecstatic one-woman choir, layers voice and technology with rapturous results.

Exploring the interstitial spaces of live sound and visual art, the in-gallery music series Sound Horizon continues this spring with three of the country’s most respected composers and solo sonic adventurers. Free performances take place within the Perlman Gallery, which features the exhibition Dance Works II: Merce Cunningham/Ernesto Neto. Explore the Walker galleries for free from 5–9 pm. Presented in association with American Composers Forum.
