Olivia Block & Julia Holter: Whenever the Breeze

June 2, 2018 @ 3:00 am - 4:30 pm

OLIVIA BLOCK and JULIA HOLTER’s Outer Ear Residency culminates in a premiere performance of their collaboration ‘Whenever the Breeze’ at the ethereal May Chapel in Rosehill Cemetery.

This event is free and open to the public.

‘Whenever the Breeze’ is a sound world by Olivia Block and Julia Holter that weaves together fragments of voice, instruments, field recordings of wind and water, and bells. Whenever the Breeze combines text from a medieval troubadour poem (Whenever the Breeze Blows) and contemporary weather-related news clippings, creating layers of meaning through immersive sounds.

Julia Holter: Voice, organ, text and arrangements.

Olivia Block: Live electronic processing of voice and microphone, field recordings, arrangements.

Featuring Tim Daisy on percussion.
