Piece Comment

Review of Julie the Amtrak God

Very weird but in a really nice way. I think the term "zen-like" is overused and misused so I won't use that to describe this piece. But it is hypnotic in a way and lovely in a way too. The human voice has a lazy sexiness that makes this encounter alluring in a way one wouldn’t expect. I've heard this technique used before, but it's always in other direction – the recorded voice is always messing-around with a human. I guess that's one thing that’s so wonderful about this; the person is messing with the machine which is something we're told we're not allowed to do anymore.
