Video of producer / DJ Holly Herndon performing at the Boiler Room. It’s not the most accessible Boiler Room set you’ll see; it actually takes Holly about twelve minutes to present some semblance of a steady beat. However, it’s still pretty awesome to see her perform the mind-bending strangeness of her debut album live.
Sonic experimentalist Holly Herndon’s latest collection of tracks, Movement, is out now via RVNG Intl., and the track streaming above is one of the stranger moments on it. Featuring a vocal take from Bruce Rameker, Herndon methodically manipulates it in numerous ways over the course of the track. While, at first, it sounds as if the next six minutes will most likely be a bore, what happens here is actually quite eye-widening and oddly gripping.
