Holly Herndon is an electronic musician and performance artist. In fact, she’s not just an electronic musician – this tag seems a little too broad. Rather, she’s a computer composer and sound artist, one who honours compositional traditions established by artists like Karlheinz Stockhausen and diligently carried through to the present day. She uses a laptop for both making music and for live performance, and has a deep, philosophical interest in this machine’s role in modern society, describing it as "the most intimate instrument we have at our disposal..

She’s also an academic, having recently completed a Masters in Electronic Music at Mills College, and who is now pursuing a PhD at Stanford University, California. On Movement, her recently released album for RVNG Intl., Herndon experiments with genuinely original and genuinely innovative techniques to create a record that marries her academic, experimental background with the dancefloor-focused, sound system-worshipping world of techno. These two sensibilities come from Holly’s movements in life, which took her from her hometown in Northeast Tennessee to Berlin, where she spent years involved in the party circuit. « hide
