This album, possibly the most vocal-based release ever to come out on attenuation circuit, is a unique blend of improvised songs by Canadian performance artist prophecy sun and the electronic treatment of her voice by EMERGE.

Apart from being a dancer, video, and installation artist, prophecy sun is a master theremin player, an improvisational looping maestro and an experimental throat singer. Although on this album she uses only her voice, all of these practices feed into the way she uses it and how she constructs her songs out of words and, more often, just vocal sounds. The dreamlike, spectral quality of the theremin, the recurring patterns of the loops, and the wide range of vocal timbres available to the throat singer are all there in this music. EMERGE delicately treats the vocal material to create a dense, yet fragile sonic environment in which sun’s vocalises can take root and grow. For anyone who wants to discover the richness of experimental female vocals, this is a good place to start, on a par with Björk and Joan La Barbara.
