Album Notes
"Sexiest Poem of the Year Award 2008"
If you haven't heard the CD MATCHING HALF by Waldman and Oliver (with Ambrose Bye's music), then you haven't heard anything like this, I guarantee you! The political as FIERCE poem as FIERCEST song of 2008! - CAConrad

Matching Half
 covers a wide range of themes—from corset-makers in St. Petersburg (in a song that illuminates a historical connection between Emma Goldman and J. Edgar Hoover), to Buddhist binaries (in “Flame” where Bye loops haunting piano- scapes over quiet bass and percussion), to manatees (in a cri de coeur for the non-human world), to splatters of violence that mark the world map and “shapes of the mind on fire.” -Forrest Gander
