Organised by: Koncertzāle Cēsis

The Ambiente Stage series of Cēsis Concert Hall continues to introduce its listeners with young and talented musicians, walkers of paths less trodden and passionate seekers of a different sound. This time around, you are invited to attend a concert by the American composer and singer Julianna Barwick ‒ her only appearance in the Baltic countries as part of the European tour supporting her latest album Healing Is a Miracle.

The Louisiana-born Julianna Barwick creates her music by live-layering her vocals, and the result is ethereal ballads rich in dreamy voice loops. Each idea in her deep and contemplative pieces develops and evolves into an exciting and vast universe of sound. A huge role in Barwick’s work has been played by three fellow musicians who are her long-time personal friends ‒ Jónsi (Sigur Rós), Nosaj Thing and Mary Lattimore.

Singing without words is something I’ve always done,’ says Barwick. ‘I just kind of make up my own language. I remember doing that when I was a kid very clearly, [..] singing along [..] in a made-up language. It’s most comfortable for me to just sing whatever pops into my head, and concentrate most of all on the sound.

Julianna Barwick has recorded six critically acclaimed albums and performed with the likes of Yoko Ono, Philip Glass, The Flaming Lips, Angel Olsen and others.
