Annette Peacock biography
Annette Peacock (née Coleman) - Born 1941, Brooklyn, New York, USA

Born in a musicians' family, Annette PEACOCK started composing at the age of four and would lately evolve to writing "in an idiom she calls the 'free-form song' which emphasizes the use of space in contrast to the busy, cacophonous tendencies of free jazz".

From a very young age she was also involved in alternative cultural and lifestyle movements, for example as an early participant (1961-1962) in Dr. Timothy Leary's psychedelic culture experiments and a longtime adherent of Zen Macrobiotics; all this creatively reflects both in her poetic writing and innovative composing.

Her avant-garde compositions started appearing on the legendary experimentalist jazz pianist Paul BLEY recordings (whom she would lately be married to) as soon as 1964, at the age of 23.

In the lyrics she never shied away from including political/feminist/irreverent points of view, sometimes with provocative reflections very well ahead of their time.

Since her own first recordings she started experimenting with Moog synthesizers and early vocoder technology (we're talking late sixties!)

"...PEACOCK is an unsung pioneer of electronic music. Years before the commercial emergence of synthesizers, she received a prototype from inventor Robert MOOG. This prompted her to synthesize her own voice, which according to most reports had never been done before. Ultimately these experiments brought about an innovative 1971 album, The BLEY/PEACOCK Synthesizer Show." in ALLMUSIC's Artist Biography by David R. Adler

In 1972 the UK music magazine The Wire received her first solo album "I'm the One" as one of the top 100 records that "set fire to the world".

And besides being already a singer, poet and composer, and apart from her original piano playing style and boldly free vocal improvisation, she also kept on playing bass, electric piano and electric vibraphone, in studio and live.

We have to acknowledge that, right from the very first recordings in her own name, she favored the cutting edge of the Fusion scene as well as she had the Jazz scene before that (having toured with avant-garde saxophonist Albert Ayler in the beginning of the '60s).

She collaborated with Bill BRUFORD, singing as well as co-writing, on his first solo project, 1977 Feels Good to Me, which became a prog-rock/jazz fusion classic.

I Have No Feelings
Annette Peacock Crossover Prog

Review by Lewian

4 stars This album will not appeal to everyone, and not all the time to anyone. It has a very unique mood and atmosphere. The title "I have no feelings" is interesting. Actually, many of these songs are about love and feelings, some sound quite emotional. But then the sincerity and truth of love and feelings is questioned, and Annette's singing often gives me the impression of a somewhat distant, perhaps even naive and somehow uninvolved observer of herself, her lover(s) and their emotions. Not sure whether this is just to distance herself from some pain; the song "I Have No Feelings" could suggest this. At the same time, the songs also sound very direct and personal. And, if you like, philosophical.

The music on this album is very slow and calm and quite minimalist. Although there is the odd (quite interesting) instrumental part, much of the album is driven by Annette's voice, which sings slow, at times fairly simple but often quite convoluted melodies with influences from jazz and quite strongly from contemporary classic, often atonal. Much of the instrumentation, which with exception of some percussion is all played by Annette herself, often follows the melody, rhythmically and tonally, rather than providing some reliable rhythmic and harmonic ground (although complex jazz harmonies appear at times). Piano, e-piano and other keyboards are always present, and there's also some saxophone and violin. Sound-wise the album is very transparent and natural, certainly the sound is not the major playground for experimentation; one can imagine this being played in a fairly small room, and every note is important. While some composition goes in the direction of contemporary classic, the instruments are used in a rather jazzy way.

Ultimately this is a cross between experimental composition, jazz/blues feel and a singer/songwriter-like melodic orientation. If you can't imagine how these go together, I'm not surprised, because this is very special and I haven't come across anything else like it (I don't have a very good overview of Annette's output, but what else I know is also different despite certain common elements, particularly the voice, of course). At the same time, the album manages to be very coherent. In order to appreciate this album, you need an open mind and curiosity, and you should not expect typical rock/prog elements; on the other hand you're up for something that is about melody, mood and atmosphere rather than being a wild experimental onslaught. Enjoy!

Thanks to evolver for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
