Edith Lettner & Dafna Naphtali - We Q [Clang 069 Promo]

Released via the ever active Clang label on September 25th, 2k20 is "We Q", the most recent collaborational album on the imprint crafted and carved out by Edith Lettner and Dafna Naphtali who originally met for the first time in New York back in 2k17. Combining their artistic approaches to explore a shared sonic realm with Lettner on saxophone and duduk and Naphtali taking care of both electro-acoustic composition and electronic live processing of incoming signals the hour long album weighs in a quite eclectic, expressive and partially well dramatic combination of these elements, drawing influences from Jazz and Free Improv with vocals driven by Dada-, (Hypermodern) Opera- and borderline madness, partly electronically reprocessed, partly accompanied by dry electronics and all its warps, glitches and texures which make up the trademark sound for experimental Max/MSP-based programming and sonic sculpting to create a demanding, for some even nerve-wrecking, listening experience speaking to highly experienced connaisseurs and followers of advanced (electronic) art music. An album for the well adventurous listener.
