Carol Lipnik: "A Pure Dose of Mercy" with Matt Kanelos. Presented by TWEED.
A Pure Dose of Mercy
Carol Lipnik with Matt Kanelos on piano, synths, and loops
Entering the third year of their acclaimed residency at Pangea, Lipnik and Kanelos' latest show features new originals and covers to provide oxygen for the soul -- and helium for the spirit. The show is scheduled for the first Sundays of each month.
"Her instrument is, in a word, phenomenal". Stephen Holden, The New York Times
"The soulful spirit of Laura Nyro meets the surrealist warble of Yma Sumac in this alt-cabaret star whose phenomenal four-octave range conveys everything from dark and delusional Alice in Wonderland mushroom fantasies to face-in-the-sidewalk security-state concerns... a siren song to lost cosmopolitans everywhere. Dark, funny, and cosmically aligned." Richard Gehr, The Village Voice
Carol Lipnik's voice is a thing of wonder, soaring across four octaves with remarkable fluidity, gently cradling listeners in its sublimely sustained tone.
Her songs have an aura of prophecy and the power to wound and heal.
A poet of beauty, decay and desolation, Carol sets her lyrics in spare, harmonically rich soundscapes created in collaboration with pianist Matt Kanelos. Mythical imagerythe moon, crows, wolves, boats and journeysevoke the eternal world of nature and hint at some past or future devastation. Throughout the dreamlike landscapes run subtle, sly allusions to the perils and possibilities of contemporary life, encouraging us to mourn, be comforted, and reach for another ecstatic moment of joy.
