Album Reviews
Reviewed 2002-11-27
If you noticed the Original Instrument cd in the afile few weeks ago, take note of this. Cutup and meshed female vocal samples are woven together, with no beats - mostly pretty harmonies and interlocking textures.

Woman's vocal samples, playing around with dub and delay. Lo-fi
1.mac-a-dac-a. "Raindrops" eventually becomes audible, then aahs
2.brief dripping noises then back to the lady going "la"
3.oooh-ah. Reminds me of Xeniakis' work for 2001 soundtrack, the hometaper version. Then she impersonates an ambulance.
4.tapping on a bottle, not really a beat, along with the vocals. If you can get past the start, nice layering at end.
5.toy piano, bells, voices
6.snoring and tape hiss then the singing, semi melodic then noise! back to singing & very quiet ending
