Providing original musical settings are returnee collaborators from the critically acclaimed disc Local Scores, including producer Matthew Poulakakis, Beth Bartley and Mark Clifford (who are the internationally touring duo, Vox Violins), and the Aztec composer, Rafael Gato Fuentes. Newcomer contributions come from Bill Roberts and Steven Sauve, musicians, both, of wide experience and considerable repute. On Simultaneous Translation, Coxs poems engage the titular phrases connotations with variety and licence. Translation, beyond the crossing of linguistic borders, extends to the process of writing itself, which alters actuality into documents, turns flesh into words. Spoken performance transmutes text to voice. The composers make words something else an adjunct to their music, the whole process heard as simultaneous.
