Songs That Are Hard to Sing
Label: New Amsterdam Records
Released: November 15, 2019

Songs That Are Hard to Sing is an octet composed by Dan Trueman for the JACK Quartet and Sō Percussion. In this album a bricolage of familiar sounds become ethereal. Piano melodies lilt peculiarly through bitKlavier, a prepared digital piano invented by Trueman that would make John Cage proud that “makes all the notes between the keys become available.” The human voice becomes startling when the untrained voice of a member from Sō Percussion sings for just a few bars in the album’s closing moments.
