About the Event

In the project UCC Harlo, Berlin-based Annie Gårlid proposes sonic reconciliations between the old and the new and contemplates contemporary relationships to the natural world. A classically-trained viola player and singer, many of her sound projects use samples of her own performances of medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque music as their starting point. Others begin from scratch, mixing hauntological new-age and deconstructed dance music with choral riffs, field recordings, and ASMR-inspired vocals. All of these elements investigate the territories between ambiguity and wonder. 

Annie is a member of the Holly Herndon Ensemble and sings with Caterina Barbieri. She has also collaborated with Bill Kouligas and Emptyset and performed with ASMR-artist Claire Tolan. In her work as a writer and musicologist, she researches our ever-shifting, tenuous relationships with ecology, technology, and care. 

UCC Harlo will perform material from her 2019 debut album United with live vocals and viola.

VALISE is a live multimedia performance project which speaks and dances with itself transposing ancient star data into abstract song. VALISE is Maralie, a NYC based artist, vocalist, producer, and educator whose work finds heritage in a genealogy of spiritual and sensual expression via technology. Maralie intermingles audio, video, sculpture, and performance to seduce poetics from human-machine interaction.

As a vocalist, Maralie's background in church singing instilled the practice of marking life events with ceremonial song and ritual. A reaching for the unseen or celestial otherness is often evoked. Meditations on the Eternal and the temporal form her/their living pattern of dance. Maralie also performs collaboratively as Humanbeast with artist and partner Eli V Manuscript.

Recordings as VALISE have been published by Primitive Languages, No Rent Records, Angoisse, and Devine. Enriching her/their practice as an exhibiting artist, Maralie currently works as a visiting assistant professor at Brown University and Critic at Rhode Island School of Design.
