Tenderness of Stones
Joachim Gies, saxes & electronics / Lauren Newton, voice, 2007

Listen to: "Talking Stones"
- MP3 (570kb)

Ein Gedicht des Lyrikers Michael Speier, 'Wasser und Licht', erscheint in drei verschiedenen englischen Übersetzungen und auf Japanisch. Die Musik spürt dem Variantenreichtum der Kopien unter Verzicht auf das Original nach, indem sie die semantische Mehrdimensionalität der lyrischen Sprache in klangliche Offenheit transformiert.

The poem 'Water and Light' by Michael Speier is presented in 3 different English translations and in Japanese, omitting the original. "…Tenderness of Stones…presents music as a mode of philosophical inquiry-a kind of hermeneutic motion seeking and inscribing meanings that play at the edge of language." (S.Broomer)

Lauren Newton, CDLR473, 2006

Listen to: "Soundsong 4"
- MP3 (490kb)

Lauren Newton's first solo recording, is more than simply an exercise in virtuosity, it challenges the idea of virtuosity; the embrace of the unknown, the new space, the fresh encounter with one's self, the constant redefinition of boundaries. Not just sound, not just song-pure voice.
