Event description
CCRMA presents a live performance by Vaim Sarv.

About this event

This concert will be a ritual. It will happen in a place that is dear to me, a place with acoustics both comforting and overwhelming. I’ve been visiting this place for years. It has taken care of me and for that I am grateful. I will be singing to this place and to you, us, me—my body—this transgendered body still recovering from covid and heartbreak. I will be accompanied by live electronics, heavy rocks, and large pieces of scavenged metal. My songs and extended vocal improvisations draw from the pagan oral tradition of regilaul. They are incantations and lullabies; simple songs sung to hold rage and transmute communal exhaustion. This is folk music in as much as I sing it to lessen the pain of living.

Come. Let us lose ourselves together in this place. And maybe find one another; in the land, in feeling, and in listening.

—Vaim Sarv
