Cut The World (Live) by Antony & The Johnsons
Antony Hegarty is always striving for purity of vision and Cut the World is his closest manifestation of it. Recorded live in Copenhagen in September 2011 with the Danish National Chamber Orchestra, the new record showcases Antony’s impressive catalogue.
The title track is a new composition, and the album also include two half-minute monologues of Antony’s aspirations for a matriarchal world. This beautiful record succeeds in highlighting Antony’s musical genius.
