FORM x Talkhouse: Julianna Barwick Talks with Mary Lattimore for the Talkhouse Podcast

The two ambient musicians sit down backstage at FORM for an in-depth conversation, alongside a wonderful improvised musical collaboration.

Julianna Barwick and Mary Lattimore are two of ambient music’s most brilliant artists working today. On our third Talkhouse Podcast episode recorded backstage at FORM Fest, the two sit down for an in-depth conversation, as well as a wonderful improvised musical collaboration.

Their talk takes in a lot, including making up stories about your art for the press; creating a 24-hour long score; hanging with an oracle friend of Grouper’s; and a “dead corpse” putting babies to sleep.

This Talkhouse Podcast — and video of the performance element of today’s show — was recorded in the Conservatory backstage at FORM Fest in Arcosanti, Arizona. Pulp Arts and Patreon teamed up to co-present The Conservatory, a rad backstage visual arts installation and recording studio. Talkhouse recorded six episodes there throughout the weekend, so subscribe to make sure to catch upcoming shows, including:
