Yael Acher “Kat” Modiano says “Thanks so much for buying this album. My name is Yael Acher and my artist’s name, “Kat” Modiano, stems from two sources that are close to my heart. First up, “Modiano” is the old family name that my grandmother carried from her father, whose family came from Italy.
Secondly, “Kat” is my favorite person, the pivotal character in George Herriman’s masterpiece, “Krazy Kat,” a surreal, hilarious, cartoon strip from the first half of the 20c. It raises awareness for racism, police brutality, street crime, pacifism, human/ animal rights, individualism, ancient love, Otherness, gender identity, gossip, and anything that goes on between people in any community. Herriman’s non-conforming colorful or B/W visual aesthetics including Native American inspired graphic designs, is the backdrop for the dynamics between urban characters from a building in NYC who moved West to “Coconino,” a desert town in the middle of Monument Valley’s surreal landscape.
I composed most of the music on this album in autumn 2020, during a long Covid shutdown in Copenhagen, so when we recorded the first sessions in late February 2021, we were all fresh out of isolation. In fact, I remember leading the quintet and playing the flute part on “Air- Peng’s Flight” while trying to ignore the high fever I had from a Covid vaccination. It had to “mind over matter” during that session.
The music tells its own story differently to each listener. However, here’s the backdrop: Blue KAT Moves is a Funk-jazz suite, composed of contrasting parts. The ‘acapella’ interlude with multiple tracks.”
