Climb into the cello. Make yourself comfortable. Feel the vibrations engulf you as the instrument is played. Your entire world resonates.

Composer/cellist Julia Kent creates evocative environments of sound with her cello, running it through digital delays and a laptop to magnify and multiply the music. Her latest album is called "Character," and explores the possibilities of mood and narrative in instrumental pieces. Julia Kent has been on Spinning On Air before, as a member of Antony and the Johnsons, and this time she brings her cello and her electronic accessories to the WNYC Studio to perform her layered solo music, and to talk about it with David Garland. This show first aired March 17, 2013.
