Liz Tonne is an improvisor and interpreter of contemporary composition. Using an array of extended vocal techniques, her work explores the edge of the voice as an instrument. Her vocalizations tease out unarticulated psychological states, sometimes through singing, but often in the mimicry of everyday sounds, conjuring unspoken memories and forgotten languages.

LURE is the solo project of Allison O. Utilizing field recordings and programmed audio Lure creates a haunting digital language over archived landscapes that often play with audible/inaudible sound and toy with chaotic and semi-repetitive noise. Lure explores the parameters of physical location and being inside/outside, gyrating in a concrete environment in a style alluding towards club culture and the phenomena of belonging to a sonic environment.

Weekend John Zorn Performances Reviewed

Source: The New York Times.

When looking at John Zorn’s hyperactive release schedule on Tzadik, the record label he runs, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Where to start? His recent pair of compositions for classical ensembles, or an album from his latest metal group? Oh, look: Last year’s book of tunes for small jazz combo seems to have attracted some of the best improvising players in the world. Perhaps it makes sense to select that other, also recent recording, the one that merges several of these stylistic inspirations — you know, for efficiency’s sake.
