Black Iris Gallery is excited to present an evening with Julianna Barwick & Mary Lattimore.
JULIANNA BARWICK is an American musician who was born in Louisiana and currently lives in Brooklyn. Her music is built around multiple loops and layers of her voice. Barwick, who credits a rural, church choir upbringing for her sound, begins most tracks with a single phrase or refrain, then uses a loop station and the occasional piano or percussive instrument to build the song into a swirling mass of lush, ambient folk. She released her first two collections of songs, the full-lengthSanguine and the EP Florine, in 2009 and 2010, respectively, before issuing her Asthmatic Kitty debut, The Magic Place, in 2011 and Nepenthe in 2013. Her latest album, Will, was released via Dead Oceans on May 6, 2016.
MARY LATTIMORE is a harpist living in Philadelphia. She experiments with her Lyon and Healy Concert Grand harp and effects. Her solo debut, “The Withdrawing Room”, was released in 2013 on Desire Path Recordings. Mary also writes harp parts for songs and recordings, performing and recording with such great artists as Meg Baird, Thurston Moore, Sharon Van Etten, Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Ed Askew and Fursaxa. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-W3w37RDXIY
