Holly Herndon
UK / RVNG Intl. / a/v live

One of the most original releases in 2012, ‘Movement’, Holly Herndon’s debut album on RVNG Intl., is a test chamber that hybridizes the Tennessee-born’s 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.
