COLLAPSE pt. 1 - Introit

Timur and the Dime Museum will premiere my new piece, COLLAPSE, at REDCAT on March 27-29!

For the next few weeks leading up to the premiere, I'll be posting the libretto for COLLAPSE, one song at a time.

Go the REDCAT website for tickets


COLLAPSE part 1: Introit

ECOPHAGY
Oh dearest family
I've spoiled all that you gave me
and it's all I had
and all I need
is you

Oh glorious surplus
we've ravaged all that you offered us
Now we're ravaged too,
but trying to
move on

Dark as the sun light shining
Cold as the earth's core burning
We're trying and trying and trying to unlearn this
But it's graveyard shifts and then up at the earliest mornings
