about

The Sixth Extinction Press Conference features thirty journalists with questions and comments regarding climate change, which serve to reveal the emotional tension between human denial and the facts on the ground. The accompanying Rhap (short for Rhapsody) is a recollection of the Earth’s “third and worst” mass extinction event; and the Choral Ode is a reprise, in song, of the entire press conference. This piece is an excerpt from the interplanetary, sci-musical, Quantum Tangle, a work in progress since 2012, originally conceptualized with visual artist, Kim Turos. Staged readings of Quantum Tangle: the prologue were performed in 2017 at the Central Works Theatre in Berkeley, with Peggy Videtta, Jessica Moll, and Tena Kaplan; and at The Sanctuary in Arcata, California, with Jessica Moll, 2017.

Released in anticipation of Sheila Davies Sumner's full-length collection What Is the Matter in Amy Glennon?, available through Other Minds Records on December 6th along with Modern Hits releases by Helen Thorington and Paul Kalbach.
