Zipangu, Primrose Hill, August 2013
The second/3 in the LCO’s Imagined Occasions series focusing on Claude Vivier - an orphan expelled from seminary for indecency, who studied w/ Stockhausen, at 35 fatally stabbed by a 19 year old rent boy. Fatidically, the final line of text on his interrupted final score reads: ”Then he removed a dagger from his jacket and stabbed me through the heart”. It’s all quite Jean Genet.
