ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Over the nearly two and a half hours of this ambitious debut CD, comes plaintive recorder solos, "prepared" ukeleles, darabukkah fingerwork, and an odd assortment of percussion instruments, ranging from bell and gong sounds, to the crack of woodblock-like timbres, to murmuring wind sounds.

Most striking is the voice of the eponymous Sukato, who uses an array of vocal techniques, including microtonal slides, multiphonics, yodels, and vocables, which can be ecstatically piercing or as delicate as a wispy gossamer. Her voice is raw, gritty, often unnerving, even wicked at times, but with great dramatic power. She wails, coos, whispers, and transforms her voice from the wistful to the grotesque, from the yearning to the playful, from the somnolent to the elated.

Vocals galore!!!
This is good experimental vocals!

Reminds me of Diamanda Galas in a way.

Good work!

This is a very absorbing and elegant CD set -- it sounds meditative but not at all simplistic... very beautiful and sometimes very intense and unusual, a lot of variety. I have to say, lovely work!
