"In dreams, I talk with you..." The first season finale of The Belsona Academy features -"just in time for Halloween"- the eerie and singular, electronically-modified speech of Bryan Lewis Saunders while zooming in and out of sleep. One of the latest entries in the sparsely populated audio field of somniloquy (sleep-talking), Brian's previously unreleased "Animus Chora" fits smoothly into the rest of his sound-text work as a "standup tragedy" artist. An illuminating, possibly uncomfortable window into the world of an artist who is now in the thick of collaborations with Z'ev, Lydia Lunch and others.
