    Holly Herndon

    Experimental Electro

    Holly Herndon left her Tennessee home as a teenager to immerse herself in Berlin techno culture, eventually returning wide-minded to the States to pursue a Masters in Electronic Music at Mills College. While at Mills she earned the 2011 Elizabeth Mills Crothers award for best composer and developed Movement, her debut collection of material released November 2012 on RVNG Intl.

    On Movement, Holly hybridizes her modern composition training and undying devotion to club music, using custom instruments and vocal processes developed in the visual programming language Max/MSP. Holly has collaborated with the Iranian philosopher Reza Negarestani, Hieroglyphic Being and Chicago footwork producer Jlin, and is currently a doctoral candidate in composition at Stanford University.

    Chorus was released on January 24, 2014 in a special embossed 12″ package. Another evolution in her production technique, Chorus bridges multiple disciplines and spaces to blur the politic between natural and synthetic. For ‘Chorus,’ Herndon sampled her daily browsing experience, channeling YouTube, Skype and other audio sources across the web for data that freely forms atop a bumping beat. Much like online browsing, ‘Chorus’ creates a coherent / incoherent experience from disparate conceptual and contextual sources.

    Home is a new song with an accompanying video directed by Dutch design studio, Metahaven. “Home” evolves the vocal-centric, progressive production themes of Herndon’s early 2014 single “Chorus” with a new lyrical target: “It is a love song for prying eyes (an agent / a critic), and also a break up song with the devices with which I shared a naive relationship. There is something dramatic, teenage and vulnerable to this sensation – our relationships with these interconnected devices are still so young, so naive.”

    Holly channels this sensation into a battery of found textures and fragmented voices bustling around Holly’s inimitable brand of cyber pop music. Home is available now in all digital formats.
