Holly Herndon Sits In For Iggy Pop

American composer, musician, and sound artist Holly Herndon sits in for Iggy Pop as part of our coverage of the Manchester International Festival.

She’ll be spinning two hours of vocal music that has inspired her own work of late.

Since her arrival in 2012, Holly has successfully mined the edges of electronic and Avant Garde pop and emerged with a dynamic and disruptive canon of her own.

On her third full-length album PROTO, Holly fronts and conducts an electronic pop choir comprised of both human and A.I. voices over a musical palette that encompasses everything from synths to Sacred Harp stylings.

Only 28 days left to listen. Most of this set is probably unlike anything you’ve heard before in choral music.
