HERNDON, HOLLY
PROTO
4AD
"Proto" is Berlin-based composer HOLLY HERNDON's most adventurous release to date. The album's centerpiece is her treating of vocal samples through voice processors, creating a swirling chorus that seems both synthetic & humanistic. The result might be described as "cyborg folk music" - compositionally, it borrows elements of Bela Bartok or Aaron Copland (particularly on the track "Frontier"), but the vocal timbre and cadence has just a hint of artificial sentience. The most notable piece of the vocal ensemble is "Spawn", an AI designed to process audio from the music "she" hears, and to use information to improvise and create vocal lines. "Her" contributions are heard throughout the record, mixing the computer voice to Herndon and her human associates. The product of this odd collaboration is a spontaneous expression that's at once accessible and other-worldly. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
