JOZEF VAN WISSEM "Van Wissem is both an avant-garde composer and a baroque lutenist, and thus no stranger to dichotomy (New York Times).
He has been pushing the lute’s agenda out of the academy and into more accessible circles (Pitchfork). Jozef Van Wissem is possibly the best know lute player in the western world. To get into his world is to surrender to the inevitability - and timelessness - of a strange music created at its own pace, in a manner wholly of its creator’s making. He sets the listener into a private world, looking out through a glass darkly, such is the intense quality of the music. Brevity, simplicity, directness is the key “ - The Quietus
JARBOE “..A diabolical crossroads meeting between Bessie Smith and Diamanda Galas… Jarboe can be a gospel blues belter or screeching sorceress with equal devious ease. Her flexible and hugely expressive voice leaps from the whimpers of a terrified child to avenging Shiva screams without pause or warning.” – Willamette Week “Jarboe somehow turns the simplest moment into mind-crushing intensity” – Kerrang.
