Listen to Julia Holter, Laurel Halo & Daniel Wohl with Transit, live from NYC’s Ecstatic Music F

27.02.13,

On February 23rd, experimental musicians and Dummy favourites Julia Holter and Laurel Halo performed with electroacoustic composer Daniel Wohl and quartet Transit for the Ecstatic Music Festival in New York. WQXR are hosting a recording of the evening’s performance, and – needless to say – it’s quite fantastic. Part composition and part improvisation, the show utilises synths, field recordings, Holter and Halo’s vocals and the classical instrumentation of Transit (piano, violin, cello and percussion) to create something that’s occasionally dark and looming, and often quite beautiful.
