Holly Herndon’s debut collection of material hybridizes experimental and dance music into hard-coded human sensuality. Incorporating themes of presence and physicality / flux and futurity within said musical expressions via Herndon’s unapologetic use of computer as her primary instrument, Movement translates the Avant-Garde into what Herndon fundamentally considers “life practice.” The influences of Maryanne Amacher and Galina Ustvolskaya are as prevalent in Herndon’s music as Pan Sonic and Berlin and Birmingham 90s techno. Still, in line with pop deconstructionists Laurie Anderson and Art of Noise, Movement is purposefully positioned to reach new ears beyond a niche.
