Programme Note
Daniel Wohl Corps Exquis (2013)
Daniel Wohl's Corps Exquis shares its unexpected juxtapositions with the early twentieth-century surrealist collaboration cadavre exquis created by André Breton and his Paris friends. In turn, their wordplay was modeled after the Victorian parlor game Consequences.

    New Amsterdam:
Aided by Julia Holter's vaporous vocalise, Corpus floats in crepuscular world where electronic and acoustic instruments dwell in fearless equilibrium.

Perhaps the best compliment I can pay Corps Exquis is that I couldn’t stop listening to it. The tracks are a parade of bright lights and glimpses of secret corridors, all passing by long before they wear out their welcome.
