Album Review

Interactive electronics outlining voices with computer shadowing melodies, beautiful sustains, gentle humor and humanity. Contains: Fonetica Francese...a take-off on language lessons, Odd Evening...about a Chinese radio play, An Appeal..."a fit of legal dictation plagued by spurious vocal melodies", The Sand Clock, Cincinnati 1830-1850, The Power of Suggestion...based on the voices of hypnotists, evangelists and salesmen, and Beneath The Numbered Sky..based on an Indonesian folksong. Marvellously imaginative. ~ "Blue" Gene Tyranny, Rovi
