Album Notes
Cukoo Crow is the musical accompaniment to the 2006 theatrical production of the same name. It is the Degenerate Art Ensemble's most fully realized audio recording, and tells the fable of a magical young girl existing in a vast forest and overcoming a number of dark detractors on her way to self realization and rebirth.

This album spans classical, butoh, indie, jazz, punk, noise, truly everything. For those familiar with the theatrical work, it will rekindle many of the visuals of the performance, and for those who are new to the songs, they create a truly expansive realm within which you can visualize the story unfolding. The CD comes with a 10 page booklet that has excellent photos of the band in character from the theatrical performance and ornate calligraphic illustrations of the lyrics.

For those of you who know this band, and who enjoyed The Bastress and Rinko, this is going to astound you! If you listen with headphones, you can hear many of the soft layers of electronis keyboards as well as the subtle doubling of Haurko's vocals and the delicate string section.

It is Incredible!!


A little more about the DAE:

A performance company that through hyper-experimental music and dance transforms traditional genres into multi-dimensional explosive and expressive works. This hard-edged, delicate and complex visual music and dance performance company has earned rave reviews throughout the US and Europe. A performance company that reflects our multi-faceted and multi-dimensional culture today.
DAE’s work ranges from full theatrical stage productions to intimate concerts, always invading all of the senses and the depths of the imagination.

Transformations Evolutions Collaborations Inventions

DAE is known to morph and transform – a dance company, punk/jazz band, a 45 piece orchestra - the group never losing its ability to electrify an audience and create experiences that bring audiences to new territories of perception. At its core DAE’s key artists are constantly in a state of invention and re-invention – always guided by a strong unified creative vision.

Music Dance Physical Theater Performance Art

Degenerate Art Ensemble harnesses the forces of visionary choreography and rich, complex, visceral composed and improvised music – creating music driven dance theater and intensely visual music performance.

Theaters Spaces Stages Festivals Galleries

All of DAE’s dance theater works, from small chamber versions, to full main-stage productions, are performed with rich live music – the musicians visually and theatrically integrated into the works. Many of DAE’s works are available in both chamber and main stage versions.
