part improvisation, part twisted songs, very electronic but with violin and voice (and wine glasses) atmospheric but disturbing, avant-garde.
Coming from various musical backgrounds, from Camper Van Beethoven and the Meredith Monk Ensemble to the opera, the orchestra, free improvisation and electronica, to the Cirque du Soleil, they perform as a duo, using several computers, singing, violins, guitars, wine glasses, and more.
In concert they present a combination of outside improvisation and twisted song compositions, collaborating with a variety of special guests.
Recorded and mixed by Myles Boisen at Guerilla Recording, threelivingthings is the first studio recording by these avant-garde explorers. Part improv, part twisted song composition, Dina and Jonathan play like siblings finishing each others' sentences. This cd is full of odd sounds from samples, voices and instruments, very new and very compelling.
Simultaneously strange and beautiful.
