Notes & Reviews:
On her latest release, Kathleen Supove explores our collective fascination with Debussy's music. As she observes in her notes, Debussy's music "seems to suggest a state of mind, too, envisioned in a very crystalline and personal way." The Debussy Effect documents Supove's project of enlisting several composers to bring that sensibility and their personal relationship to it to new, 21st century works, for solo piano and piano and electronics. Composer and performer Joan La Barbara is renowned for her unique vocabulary of experimental and extended vocal techniques, influencing generations of composers and singers.
