Artist: HUMBERT & DAVID ROSENBOOM, JACQUELINE
Title: Daytime Viewing
Format: CD
Label: Unseen Worlds
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Daytime Viewing (1979-80) is an extended narrative song, based on a casual analysis of daytime television drama and the audience phenomena such programming addresses. The piece explores the use of fantasy as a survival mechanism against loneliness, illustrating the human compulsion to inflate the mundane to mythological proportions. A central female character weaves tales, using threads of personal experience and the idea of TV as friend, as mantra, and as transformational window between imagined spectacle and the pedestrian plane. Originally released as a private cassette edition documenting the collaborative performance piece of the same name by Jacqueline Humbert and David Rosenboom, this heady, thoroughly enjoyable work is available for the first time ever on CD and LP. Jacqueline Humbert (aka J. Jasmine) is a songwriter of brains and wit on par with Robert Ashley, with whom shes worked extensively. David Rosenbooms complex, harmonic electronic arrangements are accentuated brilliantly by percussion from William Winant. Daytime Viewing can happily be added to a small but significant group of work that, through lesser-known paths, engaged in an equally revelatory reexamination of the great American songbook as minimalism did with 20th century composition. The CD jacket is printed on dyed, textured paper." -Unseen Worlds.

Title: J. Jasmine: My New Music
Format: LP
Label: Unseen Worlds
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Privately pressed to LP in 1978 under the name J. Jasmine and made especially for the Ann Arbor Film Festival, with artistic collaboration from the festivals founder and Once Group artist, George Manupelli, My New Music is the debut album by Jacqueline Humbert and David Rosenboom. Featuring a cast of Mills College personalities like David Behrman and Sam Ashley on backup vocal duties, this song cycle is at every turn boundary-pushing and gender-busting, yet still hilarious, sweet, and genuine, all delivered in a post-genre, art-song, cabaret musical style that happens to boast some serious avant-garde chops, courtesy of Rosenboom. If it werent so spot on, youd swear it was a guilty pleasure. As J. Jasmine writes, My New Music is a collection of personal stories and private desires, exposed, articulated, performed and dedicated to the hope that one persons fantasies can contribute to another persons freedom. Get lost in J. Jasmines world for a little long while, and be free." - Unseen Worlds.
