Album Review

Kent, Julia – “Delay ” – [Important Records]

Max Level   12/30/2007   A Library, CD

Cello music for the emotionally weary traveler. Solo overdubbed pieces by Julia Kent, cellist with Antony & The Johnsons, ex-Rasputina and other collaborations. Downbeat music inspired by airports and that strange combination of anticipation and endless waiting air travelers are subjected to; the disorienting feeling of being in transition yet going nowhere. Delay. What is there but time to reflect and contemplate and question? Kent plays all of the parts herself on these lovely, melancholy, classically influenced compositions, displaying her talents as composer, arranger, and player. Short passages of found sound from airports around the world inhabit the spaces between some of the music tracks. Listen to this music and be alone with your thoughts.
