Guest Mixtape: Julia Kent (Canada/The Leaf Label)

leave a comment »

To coincide with the release of “Temporal”, the world-renowned Canadian cellist and composer Julia Kent’s majestic fifth studio album, we are excited to present a very special guest mix compiled by one of independent music’s true treasures. The New York-based composer – originally best known as cellist for Antony and the Johnsons and member of the cello-driven group Rasputina – has quietly amassed a monumental body of solo work since “Delay”, her 2007 debut full-length. Each subsequent recording never ceases to amaze in it’s immense artistic vision and graceful execution, all the while revealing Kent as one of the most consistently fascinating artists making music today. 

Spanning a breathtaking spectrum of some of the world’s most innovative contemporary composers, Julia Kent’s guest mix beautifully blends modern classical, electronic, ambient and experimental spheres to wondrous effect. “Temporal” is available now on The Leaf Label.
