Dolls Come To Life / Michelle Cross & Joe Frawley
release date: February 1, 2013
Dolls have the unintended ability to evoke in us a special brand of melancholy. But dolls don't breath or wake or rise except under the most unnatural and emotional of conditions. Dolls Come To Life, the disturbingly beautiful collaboration between Chicago singer/songwriter Michelle Cross and experimental composer/sound collage artist Joe Frawley, explores in sometimes direct, sometimes abstract fashion this unsettling what-if scenario.
