Holly Herndon, Movement
2012 | Label: RVNG INTL. / SC Distribution

The first sound you hear on Holly Herndon’s Movement is a blurt of white noise, like a heavy garbage bag dragged across the floor. Then, slowly, it separates itself into component parts in front of your ears; now, it sounds like a million pebbles hitting a puddle.

Whimper

Calling Fade and Movement "mainstream tracks" is pretty misleading, as even these most accessible of the lot are still pretty out there. I'm not going to make a value judgment about an album that consists of unmelodic sonic experiments, but potential buyers should know that what you get when you buy is mainly that. It's an album of explorations such as...: "What would happen if I made a track of just me breathing, with some gating effects and stereo channel manipulation? What would happen if I uttered wordless syllables into a crazy reverb filter that goes PING! over and over? What would happen if I made an album of college art-class idea tinkering and actually released it for purchase?"
