ALTERNATIVE PRESS : May 1992


VARIOUS ARTISTS
A Bead To A Small Mouth

This is a collection of experimental works by four artists using voice (studio or taped) and industrial noise. As with all experimental works, pieces either succeed or they don't, based upon the skill of the artists in working with a very difficult medium.

Graeme Revell and Anthony Mannix offer two pieces. Of these, "The Skull" is the successful one. Backed by a haunting mix of electronics and percussion, the narrator begins by describing the decaying skull of his beloved, and then launches into a hypnotic (although impossible to follow) train of thought that carries the listener along without one really understanding why.
