Louisiana-born, Missouri-raised musician Julianna Barwick may call Brooklyn home now, but her extraordinary vocal style clearly originates from some other, heavenly realm. She conjures her uncommon vox by layering and looping her ethereal voice. Barwick’s second full-length solo studio outing, Nepenthe, was released in August of this year—to critical acclaim—on Dead Oceans. Created in collaboration with Alex Somers, Reykjavík string quartet amiina and a choir of teenage girls, Nepenthe takes its title from a storied anti-depressant—or “drug of forgetfulness”—referenced in Greek literature and mythology, including Homer’s epic “Odyssey.” Commune with the many singular voices of Barwick at Immanuel Presbyterian Church on (114 Carlisle SE) on Monday, Dec. 2. This rarefied all-ages recital begins at 8pm, and admission is $10. Local electro-acoustic ambient/noise project MŪN opens this out-of-this-world concert.
