WATCH // Julianna Barwick Scores Zia Anger’s ‘I Remember Nothing,’ Watch It Here

Julianna Barwick has kept busy with a multitude of projects, performances, and more in the last year or so. Today we’re excited to share one of them with you! Julianna has written and performed the original score for director Zia Anger’s latest film, I Remember Nothing. The film follows the day in a life of a student, named Joan, who’s unaware she’s epileptic. To reflect the phases of a seizure, I Remember Nothing is structured in five sections. The cast features Lola Kirke(Mistress America, Gone Girl), Michael Cavadis (Wonder Boys, Girls), India Menuez (Up In The Air, Uncertain Terms), Adinah Dacynger (Uncertain Terms) and Poet Robert Kelly.

Julianna Barwick and Zia Anger have been collaborators for some time. She’s also directed music videos for Julianna, including the video for “One Half“. You could argue it was second nature, an “ah, of course!” moment for Zia to create a film with Julianna in mind. Here’s what Zia had to say about Julianna’s involvement,

“I wrote ‘I Remember Nothing’ knowing that Julianna would score the piece. The score was always meant to be this 6th and final piece of the main character of Joan (the other 5 being represented by on screen actresses.) When she was writing the score there was a moment where we actually sat down and I gave her direction, similar to the way I would direct actors. It was really a fascinating experience to say the least.”

WATCH // Julianna Barwick Premieres “The Harbinger” Video, West Coast Tour Starts Friday

Julianna Barwick has had a busy Fall releasing her new album Nepenthe, opening for Sigur Ros on their North American tour, and playing the opening night party of Pitchfork Festival Paris just a few weeks ago.

Today, she releases the second music video from her debut album, Nepenthe, for the song “The Harbinger”. The video, made with her constant collaborator, director Derrick Belcham and premiered today on Pitchfork, beautifully captures the song’s celestial qualities and can be seen above or here on our Youtube channel.

On the video, director Belcham notes, “The video illustrates a moment in which an individual makes a sudden choice which they know will change their life forever, for better or worse, and the freedom that this affords them, liberating or oppressive. It is a non-linear illustration of catharsis.”
