Jessica Sligter’s work mixes crooner and experimental musics in a 'noir' conceptual space. Austere abstract electronics are juxtaposed with a dramatic expression reminiscent of operette.
With connection to Robert Ashley, Eliane Radigue, Anne Gillis and Scott Walker, Sligter operates in a dark, charged, and solidly arranged sound world.
Sligter’s last album ‘A Sense Of Growth’ (Hubro, 2016) went straight to the top of The Wire’s top ten albums of the year list and got glaring reviews from Uncut, Mojo magazine, and more. ‘Polycrisis:yes!’ (Butler & Butler, 2018) will be released 28th of september. A concept album where Sligter takes a critical look at the current political landscape and the broken European dream, in a dystopic sound world.
In addition to making records, Sligter writes commissioned pieces for ensembles. Her podcast Nuts And Bolts (interviewing female identifying colleagues about gear) is published on The Quietus Radio Hour.
Coming from a musicians' family, Sligter started making and writing music early on. Through studying music, a love for rock and song intertwined with a love of jazz and improvised music. As an independent artist, Sligter toured across the western world with collaborative and solo projects, before a masters program exposed her to conceptual art, another influence marking her current work. From this eclectic background Sligter has carved out a unique vantage point, through her diligence as a composer, arranger, and producer.<br>
