Aftershock 12:49


Fluvium is the second CD collaboration by Archer and Monk, following on from Angel High Wires. It was originally conceived as a live performance work for the duo, but this recorded version adds virtuoso vocal orchestrations by Tippetts. Unlike Angel High Wires, which is mainly sung, in Fluvium Geraldine's own spoken performance of her text takes centre stage. After a shimmering instrumental prelude, the first part concludes over an ominous drone, which is picked up by an almost African sounding ostinato in the second section. The work then moves into faux pastoral territory before concluding with the violently pointillistic Metablethers. Completing the disk is a related but separate composition, Aftershock, featuring a dramatically multi tracked Julie singing over electronically scrambled spoken word (again from Fluvium) by Geraldine.
