This fascinating, unsettling and unique project comes down to one simple idea: A collection of songs based on the ten Biblical plagues that take place in the book of Exodus. A simple idea, but a complicated story. These songs were commissioned by a British arts organization called Artangel to form part of a large-scale public art event. The Margate Exodus transforming a dilapidated seaside town on the North Kent Coast into the setting for a vibrant modern recreation of the Israelites' Flight from Egypt. During the event, the plague songs are performed by local singers and musicians. Contributions on this CD come from Scott Walker, Rufus Wainwrights, Brian Eno, Robert Wyatt, Stephin Merritt, Laurie Anderson, and Imogen Heap.
