Notes and Editorial Reviews
Du Yun, hailed as a "significant voice" by the Financial Times as a composer of concert music, releases her first album on New Focus. Raised in Shanghai, China, Yun blends chinese and English lyrics freely on the album. Recorded and produced in New York, Shanghai, and Montreal, Shark in You features Yun as a vocalis, compose, producer and lyricist in 12 far ranging tracks, from dance electronica to Kurt Weill-inspired neo-cabaret.
Du Yun’s voice has a piquant international flavor. Her style sounds like a blend of Iva Bittova (Czechloslovakia) and Björk (Iceland), with some early Yoko Ono mixed in. She coos, pouts, moans, and whispers between barely perceptible, heavily accented English
words... This CD is a wild ride, well worth jumping aboard.
