REVIEW - Bit ` by Bit, Cell by Cell: Yoav Gal & Yael Kanarek Bit By Bit, Cell By Cell (Innova) Like clusters of angels caught in various beams of light and held suspended as their songs bleed through to our world. Actually this is a "postmodern opera", and features a performance of the opening track Portal as a Quicktime movie in addition to the eleven songs. The musical backing and interludes are all performed on an Atari 800XL. Soprano Sarah Rivkin's voice is sometimes layered into choirs of operatic/angelic voices. The Atari 800XL sections have a thick antiquated/timeless quality, sometimes almost sounding like a seriously deranged harpsichord. Quite lovely, listenable, and beautifully packaged as well.
