News from Julia Santoli – two upcoming performances and a 2018 research fellowship from the Asian Cultural Council

VCS alumna Julia recently sent us the following information about two upcoming performances and a new fellowship she’s recently been granted. I’m posting all of the information from her announcements here, and will follow up with more information on the performances as the date of each approaches.

Here are her announcements of two events scheduled for the 13th and 14th of this month:

Julia comments: “Excited for this second installment of “Siren Sore” cycle at Issue Project. Creating the title piece with bassist Zach Rowden, and thankful for consulting and perhaps construction help from Kyle Keayes. Reflections on active compassion, transmuted into loose song-structures and performance ritual. Especially excited to share this one!!”

ACC Fellowship

I am thrilled and thankful to announce I have been awarded a 2018 Asian Cultural Council Individual Fellowship for research on experimental music and body-based performance in Japan (for Spring of 2019– if you have any tips please lmk). This is an amazing institution that supports the work of many artists; I encourage you to look into it as well! Here is a post from their blog.
