THE OPTION OF SILENCE
A night of distinctive female artists working with experimental sounds. LA resident Julia Holter and Norway's Jenny Hval both combine avant-garde structures with music at the edge of pop; they also work with explicit lyrics exploring sex and gender, subverting expectations. Holter's "Tragedy" and Hval's "Viscera" were among 2011's best albums. New Yorker Julia Kent performs work for solo cello.
