New York based cellist Julia Kent came into view from performing with Rasputina and Antony & The Johnsons, and her performance credits are impressive as well, including Swans, Library Tapes, and Aiden Baker. Asperities is her fourth studio album, recorded and produced entirely by herself. Layering string work and electronics with a palpable emotional core, place this next to your Max Richter and Jóhann Jóhannsson. Limited vinyl and CD on The Leaf Label.
Moody, atmospheric cello music anyone? Julia Kent has built quite the loyal following over her previous 5 studio albums. Temporal sees her dark sound move towards more organic instrumentation. You can feel the strings being plucked and slashed across her cello over minimal electronic tinkering.

Guitarist and tape looper Jean D.L. trades some threads of thought with the esteemed experimental cellist Julia Kent and a whole album comes out. You lucky lot. A gorgeous timbral juxtaposition sees The Great Lake Swallows become a unique soundworld of its own, one combining crystalline guitar, aching cello and acousmatic sound. Gizeh rule!
Shinya Sugimoto & Jeremy Young with Julia Kent
Pianist and composer Shinya Sugimoto met with guitars’n’tapes dude Jeremy Young, and then added Julia Kent’s processed cello into their duo mix for some extra magic. With looping and processing and intuitive sound design, you might find it hard to pull Total Fiction apart to its constituent elements again, which just shows the success of the project. LP on Phinery.
