BY RACHEL MASON
@ VOL 2
ON OCT 16, 2014
Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

He read beautiful pieces of the drama - for me a very moving moment. And then came the complete fun - in the name of PechaKucha variaty in content - there came a whole team of Rollerderbygirls presenting their passion for the game! Brilliant pianist and composer - art & technology student Dominik Blasko finished the evening both talking about composing, making different art installations AND playing one of his pieces - a beautiful dot to a wonderful evening.
