Julia Reidy

Prolific Berlin-based guitarist and composer Julia Reidy mostly explores the outer ranges of the guitar. Their microtonal, ambient compositions employ non-conventional tonal arrangements, electronic processing tools, and auto-tuned vocals to realise experimental and emotive sound pieces. Pitch-shifted guitar tremolos, shimmering electronics, and fleeting vocals drift through vast vistas that convey lone figures in desolate landscapes. 

Reidy’s latest album World in World (2022), released by Black Truffle, highlights their unique approach to guitar-based music. It’s a spacious work, with evolving finger-picked guitar lines and echoing reverb. The intimacy of the music is heightened by the frequent pedal clicks, emphasising the in the moment-ness of Reidy’s beautifully unorthodox playing style. 

Julia Reidy performs on Saturday 8 April.
