the incendiary orchestra

To showcase the collection of lyrical work on City of Song: The Incendiary Arias, and missing the tongue-drum delirium days with the infamous Oblivion Brotherhood, Chris formed the Incendiary Orchestra. Together with the famed koto player Michiyo Yagi (the John Cage of koto), the violinist Edgar Kautzner, and tabla troubadour Andy Matsukami, a series of shows were scheduled in Tokyo. At SuperDeluxe, Roppongi, the “fiery” performance was filmed for INK MUSIC: In the Land of the Hundred-Tongued Lyricist—a documentary of Chris’s lyrical outpourings. It is slated for release in 2009.
