Julia Wolfe is one third of the trendy composer collective Bang on a Can, whom in a number of years have made a name for themselves by festivals, releases and concerts in New York.
After Julia Wolfe received a Pulitzer Award in 2015 for Anthracite Fields, Los Angeles Times described the work as an unforgettable and shaking description of the coal miners situation in Pennsylvania.
The work contains a lot of musical styles and effective shady visuals.
