This Friday, October 29th, Julianna Barwick will be collaborating with legendary drummer and composer Ikue Mori at White Columns gallery as part of their year end exhibition. RVNG Intl. invited Barwick and Mori to collaborate in the gallery's Project Room as part of RVNG's FRKWYS series (which has included the likes of Excepter and Psychic Ills). Over the course of the event, Mori and Barwick will perform four times, each piece pressed to 12 inch vinyl in real time at the gallery. An interactive projection by Erik Mika will illuminate this exercise in simulated engagement.

Julianna's music had us at the first layer, which is saying something because there are oh-so many of them to discover in her music. But probably no guitars. Maybe. Anyway, no matter: it was her SXSW performance that sealed the deal for us, an enveloping magic that makes you want to close your eyes and lay down, letting her music envelop you.
Julianna has mentioned something about an upcoming album, which of course we are anxiously waiting to release. Having just played a few sets at SXSW and with the Clogs in Brooklyn (her current homeborough), she is now departing for the WE ALL OWE Tour with label-mate Roberto Lange (who will be performing as both Epstein and Helado Negro) and friend of the label Jonathan Dueck. On tour she will be collaborating with Roberto and Jonathan to create another new album assembled from their experiences with each other and those they meet along the way. See tour dates here. In May she tours again, this time with Eluvium.
