Julia Holter - "Phonetic Translations"
"I re-composed sound for these found videos, mostly working by way of 'phonetic translations' (translating the sounds of the Russian words into English). I performed music with this video as a part of The Series at the Standard Hotel in downtown LA, March 8, 2011. This was my first time 'translating' with video, which appealed to me because of the challenge (and awkwardness) of 'syncing up' with another's lips and, occasionally, another's gestures. These and other translations are a part of my 2011 Translations project with Human Ear Music"
