Composer/performers Laurel Halo, Julia Holter and Daniel Wohl join forces for a new collaborative commission, performed by all three artists along with Wohl's TRANSIT ensemble. Halo, Holter and Wohl will also present songs and compositions with new arrangements and configurations for live instrumentalists. Paris-born composer/performer Wohl draws on his background in electronic music to create works that intimately merge electronic and acoustic elements. His distinctive hybrid format has earned him praise as one of his generation’s “imaginative and skillful creators” (New York Times) “shaping our contemporary music scene” (NPR). Holter’s take on ambient pop earned her a place on NPR’s list of Best Outer Sound Albums of 2011. Her compositions, says AlteredZones, “sound kind of like what might happen if Arthur Russel, Brian Eno, and Joni Mitchell were sent back to the 18th century to make chamber music.” “The textures and tones in [Laurel Halo’s] music seem to reflect the ever-shifting nature of phenomena and the phenomena of nature, says The Guardian. “Prepare to bliss out, and for after-shocks.”
