Julia Santoli
Music Residency

Julia Santoli is a multi-disciplinary artist and experimental musician. Creating immersive and precarious environments with voice, feedback, electronics, and installation, her work melds the physical import of a collaborative, site-specific sonic approach while flirting with the accessibility of song structures. Her approach to vocalization integrates embodied practice with an attention to close listening and empathetic response, in compositions and structured improvisations often tipping the scales between resonant clarity and extreme sonic states. She was most recently a Asian Cultural Council grantee to Japan, and a 2018 Artist in Residence at Issue Project Room. Solo works and collaborations have been presented at spaces including Panoply Performance Laboratory, Issue Project Room, Roulette, Judson Memorial Church, Queens Museum, Drawing Center, Widow Jane Mine Cave, and artist-run spaces across the United States; Leipzig, Germany; and Japan. She is one half of liil, alongside cellist Leila Bordreuil. Other collaborators include Tamio Shiraishi, Zach Rowden, Trevor Saint, and Geng.
