Most recent release, (voices) (1998)
Anna Homler, John Zorn, Iva Bittová
Their performances consisted of an improvisation, followed by 3 of Joe Zitt's compositions, an intermission, and then several more pieces, written by the other two members of the group and by John Cage. This is not easy listening, not pop, nor even really like any other vocal ensemble I'd heard before. Mostly difficult music, but quite fascinating. I think my favorite pieces were "Halleluyah Ketjak" by Joe Zitt and "Angelorum" (apparently an excerpt from a larger piece), by Thomas Bickley. While I can't recommend this to everyone, I'd certainly go see another show. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
