Gregor Samsa

“As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect.”

Franz Kafka – The Metamorphosis

 

After wandering one evening through the fictional woods I discovered that Kafka’s Metamorphosis, read years earlier, had made an indelible impression on my aesthetic mind. So much, so potent, so insane and maddening; all wrapped into a story of spectacular coherence. Everything happens to Gregor Samsa. Like a post-modern Job.

This piece is still in progress and pending a full performance and recording.
