Limitless, Jennifer Koh (2019)

About the Album

Limitless celebrates the collaborative relationship between composer and performer, while also exploring the historical role of the composer as performer. This spirit of collaboration contrasts with the conventional notion that composition and performance are discrete and detached parts of the musical process.

— Jennifer Koh

About “Give Me Back My Fingerprints”

The piece is a personal narrative for both Jenny and me. A woman’s scream for independence, revealing and manifesting the strength of both women’s emotional connection to each other. Intimacy, rooted in a primal need, has also, in turn, morphed into a catharsis.

— Du Yun

fiercely visceral

Steve Smith, National Sawdust Log

a standout collaboration. Brilliantly laid out noise and gesticulating resolutions lead to unsteady stillness; the unstable techniques between voice and violin lean into a deeply raw display.
