Details:
Household Items, a song cycle by composer/pianist Brian Friedland, is music that examines the realities of everyday life. Literally. Utilizing texts from items that are typically found in the household, Friedland’s music creates atmospheres that comically enhance the product’s claims or give it a new spin. Household Items is a commentary on the ridiculous nature of advertising claims, warning labels, ingredient lists, and instructional manuals, expressed through an eclectic mixture of styles, including an Irish jig, operatic art song, gospel anthem, meditative music, and more. It addresses nearly all tangible aspects of domestic life including the kitchen, bathroom, garage, and wine cellar. Angela Vicente, a vocalist who is equally at home in jazz, pop, and classical settings, brings a wide palette of expression to apply to the myriad subtleties of commercial products.

Praise for Household Items

"Separately, Brian Friedland and Angela Vicente are fabulous and inventive artists. Together, the effect is exponential. The musical parodies of "Household Items" are fantastic, funny and poignant voyages"

-Composer/pianist Shelly Berg (musical director for Patti Austin, dean of University of Miami School of Music)

"Brian Friedland''s Household Items song cycle is clever, witty, beautifully crafted and brilliantly executed by the Friedland/Vicente duo. Friedland has his own take on working with "found poetry"...... fresh, inventive... These two young musicians are bound for a exciting future."

-- Composer/pianist Frank Carlberg (Recordings on Accurate Records and Fresh Sound labels, has performed and recorded with jazz icons Bob Brookmeyer and Steve Lacy)
