Review

Two bizarre present-day yodels — well, the beginning is indeed a yodel,
but it’s just an excuse to ignite a stretched vocal fire in which Doreen is
elongated and superimposed to herself while ‘electroacoustic bodily
functions’ (mostly from the stomach, I’d say) act as a contrasting element
to the beautifully looped yodels, which are absolutely not reminiscent of
Austrian mountain villages, instead reminding me of contemporary
computer minimalism — and, in the second movement, of war sirens
howling in desperation.
