The Hanging Garden is a creative tour de force. The music transports the listener though many different worlds, from horrific images of places where the "blood flows like wine", The Witch's Tale, to absolutely beautiful tribute to to Clara Rockmore, Clara De Lune. Hypnotique merges classical, avant-garde, pop, and cabaret styles. The music has style all of its own that is refreshing, challenging, and always interesting. Sometimes she is terrifying ("Have you ever had a dream about killing someone in your own family?"); sometimes poignant; and sometimes humorous.
I'm very impressed with he use of alternative tunings, not just with the Theremin, but with her voice. At first I thought some of the passages were out of tune, but after several hearings and much consideration, I'm convinced there is method to her madness. These tunings create moods and effects that are magnificent.
The Hanging Gardens is unlike anything I have ever heard. I was immediately attracted to this music. It stands up to repeated listenings, or should I say, it requires them.
