wikipedia: "Ihre Musik ist eine schräge Mischung aus elektronischen Samples, Operngesang und verzerrtem, kindlichen Gesang von Bianca und besticht durch seine Kombination traditioneller Songmuster und Instrumentierung mit Elektronischer Musik, Oper usw. Dabei setzen Cocorosie auch immer wieder auf unübliche "Instrumente" wie etwa eine Popcornmaschine, Kinderspielzeug oder ein Fön. Trotz ihrer, oft naiv und kindlich anmutenden Musik, sind die Texte oft sehr feministisch bzw. politisch motiviert. CocoRosie wird ein besonderes Gespür für Sprache und Symbolik zugeschrieben."

allmusic.com: "A collective of psychedelic-minded Japanese musicians headed by guitarist Masaki Batoh, Ghost records commune-minded free-range psychedelia with equal debts to the Can/Amon Düül axis of Krautrock, as well as West Coast psych units like Blue Cheer and Jefferson Airplane. Batoh grew up in Kyoto, where he attended a private school well-geared to spark his interest in rock music, from Dylan and Pink Floyd to the Velvet Underground. Later, he formed Ghost with a large and varying lineup, centered around contributors such as Michio Kurihara, Kazuo Ogino, and Taishi Takizawa. According to reports, the group lived a nomadic existence, drifting from ruins of ancient temples to disused subway stations around the Tokyo area." More info at allmusic.com

Ferrari was born in Paris and studied the piano under Alfred Cortot, musical analysis under Olivier Messiaen and composition under Arthur Honegger. His first works were freely atonal.

In 1954, Ferrari went to the United States to meet Edgard Varese, whose Déserts he had heard on the radio, and had impressed him. This seems to have had a great effect on him, with the tape part in Déserts serving as inspiration for Ferrari to use magnetic tape in his own music.

In 1958 he co-founded the Groupe des Recherche Musicales with Pierre Schaeffer and François-Bernard Mâche. He has taught in institutions around the world, and has worked for film, theatre and radio.

By the early 1960, Ferrari had begun work on his Hétérozygote, a piece for magnetic tape which uses ambient environmental sounds to suggest a dramatic narrative. The use of ambient recordings was to become a distinctive part of Ferrari's musical language. More

"The glory of the female voice"

At December 15, 2003, Coco Rosie, Gloria Deluxe and The Last Town Chorus played life for a show called "The glory of the female voice" at wfmu.org . I didn't listend to it yet, because right know I discovered so many interesting shows at wfmu.org I still have to listen, so I can't say anything about the other bands.

You defenetly should give them a try, for more information on CocoRosie, go to my older posting for more info + mp3 downloads

The story goes that after years of estrangement, the Casady sisters (Sierra and Bianca) reunited in Paris and concocted La Maison de Mon Reve (The House of My Dream). And what a dream it is. CocoRosie mess with meter and measure to create creepy and bewitching songscapes. Blending trip-hop, jazz and blues loosely led by guitar, piano, flute and weird, ambient sounds (chains, roosters, toys), the duo use their siren voices for sociopolitical rabble-rousing. In "Jesus Loves Me," they braze. Stolen from rollingstone.com
