Julianna Barwick: Will

브루클린을 기반으로 활동하는 루이지애나 출신 아티스트 Juliana Barwick은 신스 음악 장르의 범위를 극단적인 영역까지 확장시키기 위해 노력하는 사람들 중 하나다. 짧은 악구(phrase) 하나를 루프로 만들어 중첩시키는 형식은 키쉬 바쉬 등 다른 전위 음악가들 뿐 아니라 저스틴 버논같은 아티스트들의 최근 작업에서도 쉽게 발견할 수 있는데, 줄리아나 바윅은 이러한 형식의 실험에 그치지 않고 교회 성음악에서 영감을 받은 듯한 멜로디를 텅 빈 사운드스케이프 위에 무심한 듯 올려놓고 거기에 건반이나 현악기를 미니멀하게 배치함으로써 자신만의 스타일을 완성하고 있다. 7 more words
