Since the early 1970s, Jacqueline Humbert has collaborated as performer, visual artist, and designer with leading innovative artists, filmmakers, choreographers and composers worldwide. Her approach to vocal performance has influenced many composers, and the works in Chanteuse represent a new and exciting extension and reinterpretation of the "song" genre. Humbert on the release: "Chanteuse is a collection of new or previously unreleased songs, many of which were written for me by a broad range of contemporary American composers. My performance style resides somewhere between musical speech and melodic interpretation in a lyrical, poetic approach to the articulation of words, capitalizing on their inherent sound shapes, vernacular and colloquial origins, and intricate vocal rhythms. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful variety of works to present in this collection, all of which extend, reinterpret, and re-conceive what we think of as belonging to the musical genre, song." Features works by: Sam Ashley, David Rosenboom, Joan La Barbara, Robert Ashley, George Manupelli, Jacqueline Humbert, James Tenney, Larry Polansky, Alvin Lucier, Gustavo Matamoros, Katrina Krimsky, and Jacqueline Humbert & David Rosenboom.
