Vollman and partner Joseph Berardi handle all instruments, with Bernard Sauser-Hall playing extra keyboards on three tracks. Every piece is a little gem that has been polished for three years. The numerous overdubs give the impression of being in the presence of a ten-piece ensemble - there is a lot happening. They reach peaks on "Curious Couplings" (haunting melody), the strange half-awake dream "Piano Urine," and "Miliza Three Flights Down" (with improvised nonsense vocals where Vollman turns into a female version of Phil Minton)
Voice, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Electric Bass, Electric Guitar, Piano – Kira Vollman. Recorded between 1992 &1994 at Zauberklang, Los Angeles.
Kira Vollman is a superb vocalist, using the operatic qualities of her voice to her advantage and giving the music a zeuhl edge. She also plays keyboards, guitars, basses and the clarinet. They truly are a talented pair, but unfortunately they do not get the recognition they deserve. This music takes a lot of risks and most of them pay off. That's what distinguishes the good experimenters from the bad. Non Credo know when to draw the line, especially when they find a sound or melody they like.
