On further listening, where have my ears been?
Better late than never for me here –

“ JK: I’m always interested in processing organic textures and combining them with electronic textures in a way that blurs the boundaries between both, so that it’s hard to tell where one leaves off and the other begins.”
“Creative work–whether it’s making music or writing or performing physically–can sometimes produce its own chronology and in that way seem to escape time.” —Julia Kent Words: Mark Carry Last month saw the eagerly awaited return of world-renowned Canadian cellist and composer Julia Kent’s fifth studio album, ‘Temporal’: a deeply transformative journey into our very being […]
