Holly Herndon – Morning Sun
Holly Herndon has developed a repertoire of electronic music with progressive creativity rivaling the most talented modern composers. Currently a doctoral student of composition at Stanford University, she recently released her fourth full album, Platform. Her thoughtful integration of technology and humanity spans her music, vocalizations, and visualizations – recognizing both the advancement of technology as well as the human talent needed to execute technological artistry. She has teamed up with some incredible artists, designers, directors, to release a series of fully immersive videos to compliment her music. Morning Sun was released a week or two ago, while the videos below stretch back in time (although still ahead of their time). Artists of this caliber are rare, and this concise summation falls short for such a brilliant gem.
