CURIUM: Nowever: CD

Sep 05, 2006

If I understand this correctly, what it is is a bunch of different peoplemouths (some in various states of robotic manipulation) reading e. e. cummings’s poems, set to mild and minimal electro-musical accompaniment by whatever or whoever Curium is. Sounds a lot like that Laurie Anderson chestnut “O Superman” except instead of being weird and political it’s just weird and poetical. Nice background music to absorb your inattention, with just enough texture to catch your ear occasionally but not intrude on your serious pursuits like shoe-burying, ant-smelling or standing around. What are you, a dog?
