Eterna version 3.1.106a (2003)16:43
Eterna version 3.1.106a is an improv piece, which accompanies and energizes a live dance performance. 3 female singers execute the vocal improv against a pre-recorded track of their singing [a constant]. The pre-recorded track utilizes effects and overdubbing, but the essence of the live improv is in a sense un-plugged. The live singing is an artistic rendering of the digital world that mirrors a post 9/11 New York i.e. despair and hope. Mixed over the track on the fly is a looping percussion figure that functions as a colotomic gesture which guides the direction of the improv by the singers. Its asymmetrical presence changes the live vocal content, which then resonates in a language change on the part of the dancers. Thus in effect, is a layer upon layer of chance operation against the ridgepole of the pre-recorded track. The net effect blurs the lines between what is recorded and what is live. This CD is a documentation of a live performance: a visualization of Divine Chaos.
