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.
