Archy & Mehitabel
Archy & Mehitabel (Alex Horwitz & Lee Waters) write, perform, and produce music and video work from their home studio in New York City. They make their videos there too. It’s a lovely place to visit. Alexander is a classically trained composer and music theorist. He’s not bad with orchestration either, but he’s no Rimsky –Korsakov. Lee speaks several unusual languages and lived in Siberia for a while because of it. They record primarily with Neumann microphones; Harpsichord parts are played on an instrument by Zuckerman. Piano parts are played on a Steinway Model B. Lee’s voice is known in classical circles as “Basso Cantante”, an extremely low register with unusual flexibility and sweetness. Alexander’s mother is herself and accomplished pianist although these days rides horse most of the time. She calls often. Although both are from the same area of the middle of nowhere, Alexander and Lee didn’t meet until they were living in a derelict industrial park in Brooklyn, NY.
