BY VIRTUE OF THE ABSURD (LP)
Jazz inspired pop by Mariske Broeckmeyer aka Maris.
Under the moniker MARIS, Brussels vocalist Mariske Broeckmeyer creates blistering pop that is as much inspired by jazz and improvisation as by the atmospheric experiment of the Scandinavian scene. Sound and voice, experiment and song alternate and complement each other in a musical musing that is as cinematic as it is intoxicating. "By Virtue Of The Absurd" is an album that follows its own set of rules - and is therefore imbued with that typically searching jazz spirit. You are presented with musical vistas, as well as intimate dreams, stately blossoming songs, intoxicating melodies and hypnotic rhythms. [info sheet from distr.]
