"Mythical animals were a big inspiration," says composer and songwriter Jenny Hval about Meshes Of Voice, a new collaboration between her and Susanna. "We looked at Medusa, Athena and Harpy (a combination of woman and bird) - as examples of depictions of woman - the ugly, the goddess-like, the gruesome," agrees Susanna. This collaboration - featuring the two strongest Nordic voices around today - started back in 2009 as an exchange of letters, then developed into two live performances, one at Oslo Jazz Festival, the other at the Henie Onstad Art Centre, where this album was recorded. Mixed and mastered by Helge Sten (Deathprod, Supersilent), Meshes Of Voice presents a stunning vocal universe of confessions, whispers and seductions. Tracks like "I Have Walked This Body" seem to rise monstrously and threateningly out of some mythological fog of distorted improvised noise." (label info) also available on CD
