'Unraveling: Corey Dargel & Jacob Cooper'
Falling at opposite ends of the contemporary classical continuum, electro-minimalist Jacob Cooper and nouveau cabaret singer Corey Dargel present two song cycles that comment on the integration and unraveling of technology in society and in music. Cooper's "Silver Threads" features captivating soprano Mellissa Hughes, ostensibly comfortable in any scenario, singing over an electronic trance track. Dargel's wry "Hold Yourself Together" traces six interlocking stories on the breakdown of communication and the toll it takes on modern love, sung over a Baroque-style synthesizer. A more highbrow form of glitch, these subversive composers embrace technology only to undermine it from within.
