natural/unnatural; dead can dance in philadelphia

november 2011 014

We saw Dead Can Dance a while back, I meant to tell you--mainly, I meant to tell you Lisa Gerard's parting words. After we applauded them back for four encores: "You are all very special," she said, "have beautiful dreams." It is true we are all special, but few can be special as Lisa Gerard, who sings in her own idioglossia, and whose contralto is so potent and baleful it seems occult--more like the horizontal pupil of the deer or goat than anything else I could think of comparing it to in nature.
