– THE QUIET RIOT –
When Julia Kent released her album Green and Grey in 2011, it was immediately hailed as an important exploration of the intersections between the human world and the natural world; mixing, as it did, Kent’s looped and layered cello, electronics, and field recordings.
Now the New York-based composer is releasing the record on vinyl for the first time with two previously unreleased tracks, one of which is Salt Point.
The track is a typically entrancing affair with string parts woven in and out of each other, and sparks of electronic bell chimes flickering like stars in the night sky.
To coincide with the release, Julia will tour the UK on a double bill with saxophonist and friend of this parish Daniel Thorne.
Green and Grey – the re-released version – will be out on 29 November through The Leaf Label.
