Shimmer! Jesselisa Moretti & Julia Holter: video from RITUAL/MUSIC 204/06/10
I’ve been in awe of Julia Holter’s music since I met her at Tiny Creatures in 2007 when she played the opening of “Soft Bodies, Tough Creatures”. That was my first time to curate a show and the first ever Big Whup performance, so I was really nervous! But Julia and her harmonium put us all in a trance. Since then, I’ve seen her perform at the Smell, Echo Curio, 1830 and REDCAT. She’s always charming and quite often hypnotic, but her performance under Aquarium was absolutely otherworldly. A collaborative endeavor incorporating whale songs and Jesselisa Moretti’s colorfully captivating visuals, this performance set me to dreaming while wide awake. Apparently, it was Jesselisa’s first foray into the world of motion graphics- And what a world she made!
I am so very very happy these amazing ladies participated in RITUAL/MUSIC. Another big thanks to Dublab for making it SHIMMER.
