Antony and the Johnsons - Cut The World 12 inch
Out of Stock
Cut the World was recorded live in Denmark with the Danish National Chamber Orchestra. It's essentially a "hits" collection, though the title cut is new. Antony and the Johnsons have worked with orchestras before. That said, all the arrangements of the catalog material -- provided by Nico Muhly, Rob Moose, Maxim Moston, and Antony Hegarty -- are new and make full use of the various timbral, textural, and dramatic elements of the orchestra. Hegarty's compositions are all, at heart, spiritual psychodramas, drenched in an emotion so profoundly moving that it walks the balance beam between pleasure and pain.
