ABOUT THE RELEASE


An unusual duo, from the antipodes: a female voice and an electric bass, a game of opposites between natural acoustics and electronic synthesis. Soft lines and sharp corners intertwine inside songs with a traditional form interrupted by unpredictable improvisations.

With this album, this particular duo Fluct contends with a monographic work – a rewriting and reinterpretation project about the repertoire by the emblematic and gifted American singer-songwriter Tom Waits. The two musicians move freely through the vastness of Waits’s work, sometimes revealing it as a perfect synthesis of the American tradition, sometimes showing its character of spurious source of devious textures that ironically range from lunar to lunatic, from brutal to poetic.
