SHINING CITY

Music by Jacob TV. Box 2 of 3 in the Jacob TV trilogy series. This box contains his so-called ‘boombox’-music: music for one or more instruments combined with a soundtrack, to be reproduced simply by a boombox, aka ghettoblaster. A colourful mix of high and low culture, of classical music, rock, pop, rap, rhythm & blues and jazz. By freely combining avant garde with American popular music easthetics, he creates his ‘Avant Pop’ music, played on this album by a European-American team of distinguished musicians and ensembles.
Contains 16 audio tracks and 8 video clips with visuals by Jan Willem Looze, Kristien Kerstens, Michiel Zegers and Danielle Kwaaitaal.

ELECTRA performs ABLE TO BE (for voice, violin, recorder, percussion, and soundtrack)
