Interview: Holly Herndon

As haunting as Holly Herndon’s Movement can be on a good sound system, there's nothing like hearing her play that material in a live setting—the bass buzzing up through the floor and straight to your chest cavity, the live call and response between the things she sings into the mic and the sounds that come out of her computer. Herndon's string of shows in New York this month also gave us the opportunity to sit down with her for some tea and talk about her first few months as a PhD candidate at Stanford's legendary Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics, and how despite her roots in classical choral music, studying there makes her want to take "an engineering approach to music making."
