Album Review

This intriguing release presents some of innovator Jerry Hunt's SongDrapes and Strings. "Strings" refers to Hunt's linear bits of transitional music that are open-ended and include an onomatopoeic influence. "SongDrapes" are the settings for vocal performance he created for his collaboration with performance artist Karen Finley, the Finley-Hunt Report, which was staged at New York City's Kitchen in 1992. This Tzadik release alternates instrumentals with readings, in all presenting seven SongDrapes — three without their accompanying vocals — and 12 Strings, some with vocals. Finley's performances are most powerful and transfixing, and are not for easily offended sensibilities. Also appearing are vocalists Shelley Hirsch, and on "Song Drape 7," Mike Patton. Jerry Hunt's soundscapes are unique, well-executed, and versatile. This posthumous release of a series of his works provides an important volume, be it introduction or addition, in the lineage of true originals.

Hunt was also an innovative computer systems designer and created mysterious alliances of computers and primal energy in his installation...
