In the Press…

Featuring five singers / narrators / musicians / noise-makers and the composer’s layered field recordings (of wind, rivers, various birds and frogs) as well as percussion, bells and piano, Joane Hétu has composed a fascinating and rich soundscape.

Incorporating texts by Cavafy, Shakespeare, Cechov, Caille, as well as her own’s, Hétu explores again her favourite territories: from the intimacy of sex and the body, to the pain of loss and death, to art and politics.

These fragments of a woman’s life co-exist in a tightly woven musical patchwork that is highly personal, iconoclastic and decidedly poignant.

With a 32-page booklet.
