Bone Palace ballet


While writing Bone Palace ballet, I was preoccupied with questions around how and why we document human experience. The title is borrowed from Charles Bukowski, whose eponymous poem seeks to make sense of 'this dusty dream'. In the piece itself I allude to one of the earliest recordings of music known to exist—a performance of Handel’s Israel in Egypt featuring an orchestra of 500 musicians and a 4,000-strong choir, captured on wax cylinder inside Crystal Palace in 1888. The music is buried deep underneath considerable surface noise, giving the recording a ghostly quality I find exquisitely poetic.
