Annea Lockwood: In Our Name

Annea Lockwood: In Our Name by Annea Lockwood
Released: Jun 2012
Label: New World Records
An environmentalist by inclination and an avant-gardist by training (going back to Fluxus), Lockwood first composed "Jitterbug" as a mostly tape-based, nature-sound piece. Here, John King, William Winant and David Behrman bring Lockwood's work to life with scraping violas, guitars and percussion. Even better is the title track, a composition for cello and Thomas Buckner's voice that sets poems written by three Guantanamo detainees. It's stark, but noble. And if "Thirst" is a minor oral-history piece that doesn't quite connect, New World is to be cheered for broadening the Lockwood discography.
