CHECKOUT Amy X Neuburg

Robert Rauschenberg - Retroactive (1964)

Amy X Neuburg's psychoses interact to produce a beat of complex voices, which she pumps through a meat grinder of decidedly bulky technology to output a conflicted, poignant product. Heavy on operatics and featuring impressive trans-octave maneuvering, Amy manages to construct a surprisingly pleasant listen characterized more by the flowing emotion than the hodgepodge of voice loops. Her themes resonate on continuums between the everyday and the surreal, the common and the poetic, the simple and the complex, the organic and the electronic. I'm intrigued by both her brilliance and her potential.
