Chimera’s Still Warm Body – Performance with Els Vandeweyer at Klosterruine, September 1 & 2

 

I’ll be performing a new work entitled “Chimera’s Still Warm Body” with the composer, vibraphonist and percussionist Els Vandeweyer at Klosterruine in Berlin on September 1 & 2, 2021.

The 4-act, 90-minute piece, with a libretto by Bitsy Knox and scored by Els Vandeweyer, is a retelling of the life and death of the Ancient Greek monster, Chimera. Drawing from original source material, chaos theory, free jazz musicology, and queer theory, Chimera’s Still Warm Body traces notions of hybridity, asynchrony, and the manipulative power of fear.
Chimera’s Still Warm Body will be both recorded live. A limited edition libretto will be published on the occasion of the performance.

This project is generously supported by Musikfonds e.V. and the Canadian Embassy, Berlin.

Bitsy Knox Meaningless Secrets 5 min, 30 sec
 
Bitsy Knox reads from her 2020 chapbook Meaningless Secrets, which was composed in late 2019 on an island in the Pacific Northwest of Canada, during an extended period of almost total isolation. While there, an inanimate metadrama unfolded between the ocean and the pockmarked shore.
