Album Notes
"The World is Round" HA OLAM AGOL
Interdisciplinary - Sound Text Composition.
Hebrew. 32 min.
Created and performed by Josef Sprinzak (voice ) and Jean Claude Jones ( bass and electronics )
Based on a story by Gertrude Stein. Translated into Hebrew by Josef Sprinzak.
CD includes booklet with Hebrew text, Illustrations by Sprinzak and introduction by poet / scholar Haviva Pedaya.

This piece is Gertrude Steins' only children's story, but can be seen as a "children's story for adults". It tries to capture early childhood experience when language is formed. This vocal-musical composition, draws on this primal period. The piece applies avant-garde sound text art , e.g. Dada songs, John Cage, Laurie Anderson to the sounds of the Hebrew language.
