Julia A. Miller is a sound artist, guitarist, improvisor, composer, visual artist, curator and educator. As a guitarist, Julia performs in the band Volcano Radar with Elbio Barilari, which has often included Edward Wilkerson Jr., Rollo Radford, Harrison Bankhead, Tim Davis, Lou Ciccotelli, and AvreeaylRa. Volcano Radar moves fluently through a stylistic range from noise-funk improvisation to structured sonic forms. Julia Miller has also performed in the avant electric guitar trio HKM with Mark Hardy and Reid Karris, the electroacoustic trio, Auris, with Eric Leonardson and Christopher Preissing, and the power quartet Gmleteye with Frank Abbinanti, Julian Berke, and Nick Alvarez. Julia is a founding member of the Chicago Scratch Orchestra and also a founding member of the artist collective Articular Facet. Julia is a frequent soloist and collaborator in experimental and avant garde chamber music. Poetry and the voice live at the heart of Julia’s work, and poetic documents as scores, performative objects, and new media poetics are part of Julia’s ongoing exploration into the hybridization of voice, instruments, electronics, and video to create an organic whole from one source of material (her voice).
