Landscapes of a Voice - 1998

My first thought upon receiving this CD was, God, spare me, another avant-garde singer! It already seems there are far too many on this Planet, obsessed with repeating each others cliches. No, this talented Woman actually puts her fomidable Technique to a means. She creates her own very unique and unmistakable song-like material which evokes memories and dja-vus of past music, whose origins the listener may feel and savour, but never quite put a handle on. These fleeting glimpses and shadows of other musical worlds are more than the usual post-patchwork. They are the powerful conjurings of a composer who transcends musical geography with authority, humor and style.
