descriptions, reviews, &c.
Introspective poetry works from Montreal artist Rae Taylor, with music composed by David Gossage. The pieces often deal with the balance of man and nature, lovely intoned words that evoke native americans, corn dances, but not pulling punches: "on Table Mountain my grandfatehr was burned in effigy the Klu Klux Klan did it". The music is sophisticated, never interfering but building beautiful and rich tapestries over which Taylor works, at times even evoking a Miles' Silent Way feeling. A lovely and interesting release that deserves close listening.
