Looking forward to joining the choir of Heather Christian's folk-spiritual new musical ANIMAL WISDOM at The Bushwick Starr, October 11-November 4. https://www.thebushwickstarr.org/animal-wisdom
Heather talks to dead people, gets freaked out and writes music. Animal Wisdom is a lo-fi, idiosyncratic, folk-blues Requiem written from theoretical or actual (you decide) conversations with the dead performed alongside poorly remembered Methodist hymns from the 1800s, hyperbolized family mythologies, and community rituals of the ridiculous in the form of a gothic catholic mass - because how else can you address your soul? Animal Wisdom is a musical offering created by sinners and science nerds for believers and non-believers alike.
