VI005 – Ben Zucker – ‘o ur gab’

Ben Zucker’s new album o ur gab is available now. Drawing upon experience as a choral and improvisational singer, o ur gab is less a solo vocal album than an album of mouth music.
At the center of o ur gab is neither/n/nor/n, an un-spoken word piece drawing upon texts related to linguistic meaning only to remove all such content. First premiered as part of the Weisslich concert series in London, and presented in a studio multitrack here, the piece renders texts by Roland Barthes and Kenneth Goldsmith as wispy chorales of unvoiced consonants. Surrounding it are a pair of extended works made of multitracked and rearranged improvisations.
