A I've heard it said that the cello sounds eerily like a human voice. To be honest, I don't hear it; I think it sounds rather more like a whale. Then I heard Tramontana and felt quite validated! You must listen—it sounds like whale song; it is captivating and beautiful. Favorite track: Tramontana.

luce This album evokes me the strange atmosphere in the novels of Shirley Jackson... Very dense and mysterious. Favorite track: Empty States.

micha2105 Dear Julia, your music touches my soul deeply and induces a pensive and melancholic, sometimes sad mood. At the same time, however, it leaves me with an optimistic, hopeful and confident state of mind. Thank you very much! Favorite track: Flag of No Country.

about

As the title suggests, Asperities is a record born of conflict: internal, personal and global. Universal themes. The build of pressure and the threat of violent release.
Utilising looped cello, electronics and found sounds, Kent creates a world where the technological and the organic merge in perfect symbiosis, the layers of sound peeling back to reveal a beating, bloody human heart at its centre.
