ENTANGLEMENTING is Sam Genovese’s 6th album and 1st opera employing: electronic score; noise; volume; a solo Natural American vocal style.
Our story takes its initial cues from America’s 20th century bifurcated personality — private wars and public peace, democratic prose and foreign overthrows — and places that tension in the shape of a single man. His dissonance reaches crisis point.
Sam Genovese’s interests in this ambitious piece lie in generating an idiosyncratic dramatic vocabulary shifting through different forms of “language,” alternately activating the cerebral and more primal modes of experience. Traditional speech drops off into sentences completed with noise. Narrative phrases freely swap words for sounds and images. Changing modalities create expansive emotional and aesthetic leaps.
