Diamanda Galás - Vena Cava

>> Tuesday, May 5, 2009



[USA / 1993 / Mute Records]


"...Galás’s shaman-like gifts of self-transformation and self-transcendence are dramatically evident in Vena Cava. (The title refers to the body’s major artery that returns blood from the heart.) Catch phrases, multiplication tables, obscenities and heartfelt pleas for love are repeated—frantically, obsessively—as Galás’ protagonist struggles to achieve some sort of interior logic. In the works brilliant culmination, she grants the audience a moment of lucidity, pleads for remembrance from those who loved her and faces her final “judge” to a distorted, deafening rendition of Silent Night. Vena Cava is one more astonishing offering from our greatest performer of her generation.”
