Body Sound by Holly Herndon

7/10 ReviewBot3000 18 July 2014
Here's a slightly baffling offering from Holly Herndon, a kind of sound design/musique concrete piece, made in collaboration with choreographer and dancer Cuauhtemoc Peranda. Herndon has recorded the dancer in action and rearranged the sounds of heavy breathing, foot squeaks and flaps and thuds into a lengthy and fragmented passage of disorienting and amorphous sound jumble.   It's all very worthy and high brow but it's not the easiest listen and people who've been seduced by her experimental pop side should take note that this is all experiment and no pop. That said it is an interesting one, and quite an intense listen. The heavy breathing section in particular made me feel strangely uncomfortable, like I've accidentally walked in on someone in the throes of an onanistic meditation. It'll appeal to the kind of people who like Eli Keszler and that Andrea Belfi record where he imitated skateboard noises with his drums, but I have to admit I prefer it when Herndon does things with rhythm and melody...I'm so old-fashioned.
