On “5ve”, the Edmonton-based experimental artist hundredmillionthousandharnasses the power of Russian choral music to create a towering soundscape of human voice in it’s most vital tradition, distorted bass lines and percussion punctuated by chants and wails.  On an album that examines how technological advances have led to a drive to dehumanize the most basic fundamentals of relationships, “5ve” pushes the ancient choral tradition front and center – an unavoidable human act that is impossible to get around. Highly recommended.
