Album Notes
Ecstatic vocalist and violinist Bittová, meditative and overtone-singing Hill, dynamic and warbling Rothenberg combine forces in this live concert that so many audience members demanded be released, so here it is. Dedicated to the memory of our friends and mentors Pauline Oliveros and Louis Sarno.

A successful film and television actress in her native Czech Republic, in the 1980s, Bittová returned to her first love, music, and her breakthrough came in 1987 when she and Pavel Fajt attracted the attention guitarist Fred Frith, who featured them in a documentary film on him, Step Across the Border (1990), which gave them their first broad international exposure and a tour outside of Eastern Europe.  Bittová has performed with a number of avant-garde musicians internationally, including Tom Cora, Bill Frisell, Mark Ribot, Hamid Drake, Evan Ziporyn, Bobby McFerrin and has given solo concerts across the world. She has recored for many labels including ECM.

Timothy Hill weaves a natural purity of voice with threads of otherworldly abstract sound, blending seamlessly into a style that defies description. Having performed with such diverse artists as John Cage, Bill Frisell, Jeff Buckley, Allen Ginsberg, Odetta, Pete Seeger, Pauline Oliveros, and Madan Gopal Singh, it is no wonder that Hill's musical explorations span the genres of folk, jazz, world music, contemporary classical and improvisation. As a member of David Hykes and the Harmonic Choir, he was a pioneer in the art of harmonic singing, prompting The New York Times critic Robert Palmer to praise Hill as "a virtuoso of the Tibetan chanting technique."  The broad scope and genre-crossing nature of his work has been deeply influenced by a unique musical friendship with pianist Keith Jarrett. 
Musician and philosopher David Rothenberg wrote Why Birds Sing, Bug Music, Survival of the Beautiful and many other books, published in at least eleven languages. He has 16 CDs out, including One Dark Night I Left My Silent House which came out on ECM, and most recently Berlin Bülbul and Cool Spring. His work often involves interaction with the live sounds of nature.  David has performed or recorded with Peter Gabriel, Ray Phiri, Suzanne Vega, Scanner, Elliot Sharp, Markus Reuter, and the Karnataka College of Percussion.
