about

England's Electric Phoenix is one of the world's premier vocal ensembles, experts in contemporary music, extended vocal techniques and pioneers in incorporating electronics with their live performances. This debut recording of music by Neely Bruce combines new music with madrigals, with a dose of rock, rhythm & blues and jazz in a way that is characteristically American, reflecting Bruce's fascination with American music and literature.

The Plague is a rock opera in which Bruce makes his "...protest against the politics of the 1980s, and the total self-centeredness that spread over the era like a plague." The instrumentalists include ex-Soft Machine drummer John Marshall. The Dream of the Other Dreamers, to a text by Walt Whitman finds Bruce in a traditional choral style, while Eights Ghosts to a text by Michael McClure utilizes extended techniques and electronics.

Composer supervised recordings.
