Elysia Crampton – ORCORARA 2010 (PAN 101)
This album follows intergenerational trauma, fugitives of Christian violence in a twilight called puruma, returning to mamacocha, the sea that theorists call nowhere.
Dedicated to the life of Paul Sousa, who while incarcerated, worked years as an inmate firefighter across the Sierra Nevadas of California.
Also dedicated to the work of Sage LaPena and Dr. Gretel Mendizabal Nolte. (Includes misreadings of Jimenez, Saenz, Claudel, & Wright).
Not one, not world, not body, not god, not salvation, not zero; only a ceaseless approaching toward, with, and as the great mystery, by grace, tatamama. Jallalla.
ORCORARA 2010 was comissioned and released in 2018 by Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva, CH for the first floor at the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement 2018 ‘The sound of screens imploding’.
The album is mastered by Rashad Becker.
All proceeds go to the American Indian Movement West/ AIM SoCal chapters.
