Boomkat Product Review:
Bewitching, sound sensitive and psychedelic experiments from LA’s Celia Hollander ($3.33), landing somewhere between Carl Stone and Laurel Halo...
“Celia Hollander works with digital audio as a medium to intuitively form temporal experiences. Each song in Recent Futures aspires towards a different type of temporal movement: a swing between the recent past and near future, an accelerating present, a temporal eddy, a juxtaposition between massive and microscopic durations, a flowing momentum and a preserved stillness. An assemblage of field recordings drenched, sampled, tumbled, stretched, diced, dyed, layered and reversed, Recent Futures yields varying terrains of the abstracted mundane, a magical realism of audio.
Celia Hollander is an LA based composer and artist working with audio, scores, performance, installation and text. Her work critically engages ways that audio and the act of listening can shape temporal perception, generate narratives, question cultural infrastructures and cultivate social connection. Her work has been performed or installed in venues and institutions including MOCA, The Getty, Kunsthalle Basel, Cirrus Gallery LA, Human Resources LA and Zebulon, LA and she is a resident dj on Dublab Radio.”
