"Cool, smart, and emotionally charged" - Wochenspiegel 97.04.30

"Miasma" is the umbrella title of a mixed-media performance and recording project by Myra Davies and Gudrun Gut.

MIASMA 2 "cold and clear at the Higher elevations" is their second CD. It's about Nature and man, Man and woman, Girl and bug; Music that crawls into you with a mean sense of humour.

The first Davies & Gut CD, "MIASMA", (Moabit,1993 Europe/1994 Canada), is a thematic collection that uses seductive imagery,visceral sound, and intellectual toughness to evoke fantasies and the tension between reason and desire.

Gudrun and Myra have been working together in sessions and performances in Germany and Canada since they met in Berlin in 1991. In additions to mixed media concert performances and installations in Europe, they have written and appeared in two large cast feminist theatre productions in Canada:"Miasma, a Butoh Opera" with Japanese Butoh choreographer Hiroko Tamano.(Banff Centre, 1992),and "Miasma, Stupid as a Rose", produced by Maenad Theatre Co,(Calgary Centre for the Performing Arts,1996).
