Quandary Resolution 2379
pasticcio, to death, harbinger, buss
Although Sprechgesang was already done to death in pasty old 'Pierrot Lunaire', here comes along another wispy talent that now vaunts itself as a harbinger of post-neo-Expressionismus with this despairingly unfulfilled song-cycle 'Ich Liebe Mich, Mwah, Mwah' - a pasticcio of anguished beatbox, strangulated bel canto, atonal, arrhythmic crooning, and paroxysms of closely scripted scat, occasionally interspersed by improvised mirror canons of simulated retching (or was it echt bussing?) towards a cheerless claque of impassive fellow composers.
