Earlier this year, it was announced that Perfume Genius’ Mike Hadreas would be collaborating with Seattle choreographer Kate Wallich on a new contemporary dance and live music performance piece titled The Sun Still Burns Here. Today, he shares the first piece of music from the project titled "Eye in the Wall." In a press release, he states:
I think of “Eye in the Wall’ as a cosmic peep show. Watching, being watched, dancers unlatched from the Matrix and truly LIVING. Creating new rituals on the other side. Whole bodies braiding, spit glowing in the dark and a camera floating just above. We spent a lot of time in the studio alternating between the math of the song and the magic of it — which was very much like the process of creating the dance itself. Working with Kate Wallich and YC, really being with my body, really being with other bodies — there is control and a real formula but a portal opened up in parallel that is completely free and overwhelmingly full of feeling.
The Sun Still Burns Here premieres here in Seattle on October 4th at the Moore Theatre.
Perfume Genius’ Mike Hadreas will be collaborating with Seattle choreographer Kate Wallich on a new contemporary dance and live music performance piece. Set to debut at the Moore Theatre Oct. 4-5, the piece is titled The Sun Still Burns Here.
A longtime KEXP favorite, Seattle-born, LA-based musician Mike Hadreas aka Perfume Genius shares an exclusive DJ set for Midnight in a Perfect World that serves as a wonderful glimpse into his diverse record collection as he selects new and old gems from all over the world.
The song is released via W Hotels' new music initiative that supports the non-profit group Immigration Equality.
