Ann La Berge - Speak
Anne La Berge (b. 1955) is a pioneer who defies easy categorization. She is a flutist, composer and improviser, often simultaneously; she is also, as this disc demonstrates, a computer musician and a sui generis poet and story-teller. Her performances bring together a ferocious and far-reaching virtuosity, a penchant for improvising delicately spun microtonal textures and melodies. Anne La Berge, voice, flute and electronics (all tracks); Misha Myers, Josh Geffin, Amy Walker, Patrick Ozzard-Low, voices (track 1); Cor Fuhler, piano (track 2); Stephie Büttrich, vocals (track 3).
