Pus : or of the divine human waste

                                                                         (  a silent film, opera )

                                                                          produced by kreatch 

pus is a series of works referred to as of

'the divine human waste, compositions to see the body.' 

composed by k.m. chou

 

it began with a challenge to dramatic conventions—principle among them, an inherited faith in artistic intention.  Chou wondered, what happens when you surrender control to what is there?

What results is a compositional method in dialogue with the one and the many materials past, with and beyond us. 

A matrix of counterpoint that gives the human waste its body. 

 

Every step is mediated by one composer, working with the collected audio visual archive as if it were a single instrument— 'capturing', editing, scoring the musical counterpoint, and applying the text—without knowing what would be revealed in the margins of a method that forces us to look at what is there, also known as -

background

kristen marie (kreatch founder) studied music & history before finding her way quite early into the entertainment industry.  through following the scent of what the ideal niche for an opera-raver-experimental-production enthusiast may be, she found herself living and working between the us, eu & uk in a range of roles from editorial to curation to artist representation and then happily arriving in the niche of artistic partner, where the skill set and passion versatility made sense in these often complex propositions. with kreatch often acting as a few or all of the following roles:

 

art director, producer, music director, dramaturg, editor, project manager, location scout, sparing partner and solver of various riddles in the worlds of music, film & other spectacles. 

 

kreatch is currently based in new york city.
