Bayou City Music and Film Festival Performance: "Sounds of the Ether: Dorit Chrysler"
Thereminist Dorit Chrysler will perform an experimental set, after which she will be joined by Armen Ra to perform Barcarolle in duet.
Chrysler has been dubbed a hybrid Björk-Faithfull entity, a superior wizard of the theremin. An Austrian-born, New York-based composer and musician, she is mostly known for her use of the instrument you don't actually touch, but automatically think of the Twilight Zone when you hear it. A solo artist for 13 years, Chrysler has got one foot in the art scene, playing at the biggest art events like the Venice Biennale, Art Basel and museums all over Europe. She founded the New York Theremin Society, which brings together like-minded Theremin players together.
