On Turmoil & Creativity

„With the world as maddening as it is, a growing number of artists are using music as a battleground for social justice, a place for valuable political outcry. But as Holter brilliantly displays on Aviary, music built solely on impulse and improvisation, music without explicit political content, is as valid and vital for our survival as anything that deals with those horrors more directly. To create a record that envelopes us in its own logic is to allow us to imagine a new world beyond the turmoil of what surrounds us, and perhaps this is the most utopian idea of all.“

(William Doyle on Julia Holter‘s „Aviary“)
