Graft is Barney McAll's seventh album and continues this
exciting trajectory. The album features vocalists Gian Slater and
Sia Furler, the acclaimed 16 piece choir Invenio and Dan Weiss on
Graft juxtaposes the purity of Gian Slater's Invenio Choir against a constantly morphing background of virtual and real, improvisation and composition, shadows and light. It is a wild musical sound painting. Graft is a suite of music that looks at technology and the bizarre affect it is having on human connection.
Like plants growing through concrete, a child commanding a touch screen, or a tiny beating heart inside a hard drive, these pieces are thought provoking and emotive.
