The muses of La Musa: Julianna Barwick

Born in Louisiana, Julianna Barwick took her first steps into the world of music as part of a church choir, a fundamental fact since her tracks integrate her own vocal recordings into the loops that she creates. Barwick self-produced her first album, ‘Sanguine’, in 2006, in which improvisation, overdubs and vocal percussions began to define a style that she has continued to evolve.

This was followed by ‘The Magic Place’ and ‘Nepenthe’, always self-produced. But it was ‘Will’ (Dead Oceans, 2016), a piece that she will perform live at MIRA 2017 along with a visual set, which cemented her image as an electronic idol thanks to its production and to its immersive and atmospheric elements, full of soft synth sounds, loops and vocals that define her musical exploration.

Julianna Barwick has teamed up with Jónsi for her new single ‘In Light’, which arrives with a gorgeous visual from Joel Kazuo Knoernschild.
