Stripsody

Why is it that at a certain point in the sixties it seemed like onomatopoeia were the quintessence of comics ?  I guess the Batman television series and Roy Lichtenstein’s pop art paintings had something to with it.  In any case, the idea inspired American singer and composer Cathy Berberian in 1966 to create Stripsody,  a musical piece combining comic book sounds and her quite amazing vocal range, as these two renditions prove.
