An unusual one-off project by three musicians usually known as SLAPP HAPPY.
‘Camera’ was originally written as an opera for television, was recorded in 1991 and first screened in 1993. However it was not released on CD until 2000. All the music was written by ANTHONY MOORE, and all the lyrics written by PETER BLEGVAD. With vocals by DAGMAR KRAUSE, she walks a line that would seem to appeal to both pop and art music listeners. MOORE presents the greatest surprise particularly for those only aware as his work as a solo artist and a member of SLAPP HAPPY. With Camera he demonstrates compositional mastery with and extended for thematic work performed by five singers, the BALANESCU QUARTET. Camera should be of interest to all SLAPP HAPPY fans.
