About the performer
Julie Zhu is a composer, artist, and carillonneur. Her work is visual and aural, operating on an expansive definition of score, striving for the expressive algorithm. She entangles various media, from mural painting and sculpture to performance and video, and collaborates with artists from different fields to create experimental chamber experiences. Her scores range from hair cast in clear resin to temporary tattoos to traditional orchestration and have been performed by the JACK quartet, Quasar, Line Upon Line, Marco Fusi, Longleash, PROMPTUS, TAK ensemble, among others. As a professional carillonneur, Zhu has presented concerts and lectures throughout Europe and North America. She was appointed carillonneur at Saint Thomas Fifth Avenue in New York City in 2015.
