Julia Santoli is a multi-disciplinary artist, experimental musician and composer based in Brooklyn, New York. Creating immersive and precarious environments with voice, feedback, electronics, and installation, her work melds the physical import of a collaborative, site-specific sonic approach while retaining the narrative accessibility of song structures. Her approach to vocalization integrates embodied practice with an attention to close listening and empathetic response, within an aesthetic atmosphere often tipping the scales between resonant clarity and extreme sonic states. She is currently an Asian Cultural Council grantee.
At Youkobo she will be continuing work on her “Siren Sore” cycle, initiated last year while in residence at ISSUE Project Room in NYC. This long-term mutant project manifests as visual work, recorded album, and live performance through genre-crossing collaborations. Santoli will be studying the link between movement practices, embodied sound and vocal techniques within multidisciplinary genres in Japan, with a focus on Noh, Kabuki theater and contemporary noise + experimental music. She will integrate her studies into the creation of sculptures and choreographies for sound installation and performance. Experiments will be shared during open studio.
