about

After being commissioned by RAWdance to compose music for their latest work "Mine", I received such positive feedback by friends and colleagues to release these compositions as an entire album. This work "map[s] the human urge to control life, and exploring our impulse to possess." (from RAWdance press release)

This is an emotive experience of hypnotic, ambient compositions aimed at bringing the audience into a trance while watching the movement of dancers. As a listener, the sonic experience chooses to do the same whether it induces fear or bliss.

Mine is a series of 8 meditations on claiming what is truly ours in this world -- relationship with ourselves and other beings.

Thank you for listening.

"The dancers are muscular, precise, and tense with a controlled energy that detonates in vicious rushes to pin the others to the wall or the floor, mirrored in the way Joel St. Julien's quiet electronic score pulses with an ominous bass." - SF Weekly

"Joel St. Julien's score — excellent throughout — began to sound as if coming from below water." - San Francisco Bay Guardian

"With elements of great beauty balanced by sharp segments of abrasion, this score may have sounded to many live attendees like nothing they had ever heard before: the otherworldly breaking through to the surface world...This is music for dance ~ but more importantly, this is music for struggle, a soundtrack to the war within." - a closer listen
