Two Live Burials (2020)

Poetry by April Amante

Artist Akasegawa Genpei used the name “Thomasson” to describe inexplicable art-like relics of architecture, structures and objects which no longer serve their intended function, such as a set of stairs ascending to a paved-over door or a bridge over dry land. The “Live Burial Thomasson” describes an object partly submerged in concrete. In Two Live Burials, two haiku are dismantled, reconstructed, and given a new identity in a wash of the sounds of ancient instruments, reborn for new music.

The mixed Renaissance consort consists of six players: two winds (playing recorders and crumhorns), treble and bass viola da gamba, gothic harp, and percussion.
