"Some of it is rather gorgeous, not least when the solo voices, or pairs/trios of solo voices poke through all the mayhem, like sunbeams through stormclouds." - TERRASCOPIC RUMBLINGS
Third collection of works by the mighty antichoir Juxtavoices collects all the pieces we performed in the period 2012-2015 plus a disc of DVD interpretations created in collaboration with Bo Meson. Four group members contribute compositions to this collection which includes troubled seascapes, exploding islands, futurist wars, curious wordplay on the subject of ageing disreputably, a reinterpretation of early Cabaret Voltaire recordings and a terrifying ascent to the very jaws of hell.
These recordings were made over the course of a couple of years at various concert and rehearsal locations, following which the group took a 12 month sabbatical to recover from a regime of fortnightly rehearsals and 40 or so gigs over the previous 5 years. Juxtavoices returns refreshed to the stage in 2017!
