TENKO "Slope Gradual Disappearance" (JAP, 1987)



FRED FRITH (bass-guit-piano-violin-perc-production), ZEENA PARKINS (accordion-harp), ARTO LINDSAY (guit-voc), WAYNE HORVITZ (piano-synth), KRAMER (banjo), TOM CORA (cello), DAVID LICHT (drums), NED ROTHENBERG (flute-sax), CHRISTIAN MARCLAY (turntables), DAVID MOSS (voc) a.o.... a small NY army of pioneering musicians summoned up under "commands" of TENKO, a japanese vocalist who started from traditional, art, japanese origins, to develope through amazing mouth-sound ideas & abilities... a semi-improvised, extreme, yet often familiar world of vocal acrobatics, sharp spoken dialogues, polyphonic antithesis, haunted lullabies, murmuring backgrounds, verbal or non verbal auras and beautiful conventional singing... encountered with 80`s noise experimentations and avant garde.
TENKO had worked with impovisation projects & travelled wide with experimental vocal ensembles, so "Slope gradual disappearance" hasn`t been only an uncompromised avant -passionated debut(!) LP, but also a work of distilled knowledge and experience, rich in multicultural influences and global historical/mythological references.
Don`t avoid a contact with Slope Gradual Disappearance...TENKO will carry you to vocal spaces that would have stayed, without her, empty, unfilled.
