F'loom


Mixed Trio from New York City, NY

  • 2004 Boston 2nd place

  • 2004 Boston Best Original Arrangement
    "YesMiEl" arr. by Rick Scott

    F'loom is an avant cappella vocal trio that presents cutting-edge programs of "language music" - original pieces that inhabit the fertile, mysterious realm that lies between pure language (speech) and pure music (song). F'loom performs original all-vocal compositions seething with satire, social commentary, pop diatribe, slap, zap, melody, poetry, and comedy.

    Members: Robert Kulik, Bess Phillips, Rick Scott

    F'loom: Uvula Rasa

    The singing of the two men and one woman of Rochester, NY-based F'loom reminds us of Bobby McFerrin and friends at their most freeform and experimental. The first cut, "Om Chi-Chi" for instance, is a vocal percussion/nonsense syllable fest that finishes in kind of a jaded alien orgasm. "Hey Mama Numina" is more gibberish chanting. "Egg of Love" has recognizable words, and is a stream of consciousness poem to beat music. "Yesmiel" is a 3/4-speed Jewish Beatles medley-takeoff. "Western Wind" is a dissonant tone-poem, "Summer Is Icumen In" is sweetly and traditionally done, "Ye Shall Receive" is all funny strange spoken word, reminiscent of the Firesign Theater. 17 cuts, as eclectic, out-there and interesting as you can imagine!
