Anchored in an optimistic synthesis of classical, folk, rock and electronic music, With Malice Toward None elevates the idea of what it means to be human in the 21st century. Pamela Z artfully deconstructs her folk rock heroes while paying homage to youthful nostalgia and childhood songcraft, while Christopher Theofanidis and Mark Wingate partner to craft a jaggedly ethereal adaptation of poet Samuel Beckett's haunting final masterpiece. Eve Beglarian's epic Armenian fantasia (We Will Sing One Song) taps into the elemental desire to connect - it's yearning, duduk-inspired glissandi and enchanting melismas diverge and reunite as they crisscross digital soundscapes; virtuosic percussion improvisations lead to a place of sonic enlightenment. With tradition beckoning, newly arranged Armenian folk songs find their voice, over a century removed from ethnomusicological discovery. The album's titular track personifies the life of it's creator, weaving storytelling and social contradictions with Enlightenment calls to action and good old-fashioned rock 'n' roll. Communing with artists across the globe, Apollo Chamber Players expands it's bold take on our collective contemporary experience, innovating beyond the boundaries of time, place and pandemic.
