A singer whose voice is provocatively outrÃ© yet emotionally inside the song; a guitarist whose long fingers stretch across strings and frets to create chords youâve never heard before â' when they found time from their busy careers to pursue a (then) 12-year collaboration, youâd expect the results to be beautiful and strange, a compelling listen. Youâd expect the poetry and shadows, but maybe not the wilder moments (like Bleckmannâs vocals on plunger or electronically altered toy megaphone). The program includes interpretations of jazz standards and pop songs (Joni Mitchell, the Beatles), original settings of Rumi poetry, wordless vocals, and some amazing freeform sonic interplay. Monder, one of the most acclaimed guitarists of the 90s generation in New York, records for Sunnyside. Bleckmann's many accomplishments encompass jazz, new music, contemporary music theater, dance, and multi-disciplinary work; he records for Winter & Winter. Recorded and mixed in 24 bits/88.2K to stereo and 5.0, the sound is exemplary. Theo Bleckmann, voice and live electronic processing, Ben Monder, guitar, with Satoshi Takeishi, drums, percussion & laptop on some tracks.<br><br><br><br>Track list:<br><br>1.
