Gisburg is an extraordinary young vocalist and composer, with influences ranging from Schoenberg to Jazz to Fluxus. She has performed in the ensemble of Dieter Schnebel and in the vocal duo Alli Gaa in Berlin and worked with Anthony Coleman, Marc Ribot, John Zorn and others in New York City.

Using texts by Majakowski, Plath and Fassbinder, Gisburg's second Tzadik CD continues her fascinating exploration of imaginary movie music. With a dramatic edge combining the smoky tones of Marlene Dietrich, the acrobatics of Cathy Berberian and an Ellingtonian sense of orchestration, she creates a unique compositional style that can't be pigeon-holed.
