FIRE ISLAND involves 108 artists, including the Tuvan throat singer Albert Kuvezin. Kuvezin's album Re-Covers, which is specified in the script, consists of covers of popular songs (including Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and Iron Butterfly's "In a Gadda Da Vida") performed with Tuvan overtone singing and traditional Tuvan instruments. Kuvezin will travel from Tuva to perform in the piece both on video and live.
