SOUND/TEXT….
FESTIVAL OF NEW WORKS FOR VOICE IN
***BRAVE NEW WORLD***

Vocalist Book presents, Ursonate, the 1932 classic DADA text/score by Kurt Schwitters. This ecstatic “nonsense” music-poem intersects with Book’s attraction to vocal expression that falls outside of language proper and just this side of song. Ms. Book will also perform simple sounds, a fluxus-like mix + match epic for the homager of anti-hero of the house. “…Highly expressive, intense,…(and) outrageous vocal explorer” Chicago Reader, 1995.
