Weird of the Day, Moogfest Edition: Holly Herndon

Holly Herndon

Next week, Asheville, North Carolina will play host to Moogfest, an annual electronic music, technology and art festival honoring synthesizer pioneer (and longtime Asheville resident) Robert Moog. The festival is one America’s best when it comes to booking leftfield artists, so every day leading up to the festival, we’ll share some of the weirdest entries on Moogfest’s packed, five-day (Apr. 23-27) lineup.

First up: San Francisco-based singer/composer Holly Herndon, who creates ethereal, abstract soundscapes formed almost entirely out of her looped and processed vocals. Herndon’s hardly the only electronic voice artist on the scene these days, but she’s certainly one of the most innovative, as this wildly disorienting video for “Chorus” illustrates.

Herndon appears at Moogfest on Saturday, Apr. 26th. For more info, visit the official Moogfest site.
