Umami is a very special collaborative remix project between The Lifted Brow and Cordite Poetry Review. Original pieces of poetry and flash fiction were selected by Cordite guest editor Luke Davies, before The Lifted Brow assigned some of our favourite creative minds — visual artists, writers, musicians, architects, programmers, designers and technicians — to remix these originals and produce fourteen new works. Each weekday over the next three weeks we’ll publish a new one of these extraordinary responses on our Umami site. Today we feature musician Geryon’s remix of a poem by Stephanie Christie.
Geryon is a Melbourne-based trans multi-instrumentalist performer and producer. They have played in many forms and places, having toured interstate and internationally as a guitarist and performer, supporting artists such as How to Dress Well, Amanda Palmer, Bonobo and The Bamboos. They currently perform around Melbourne as an analog electronic artist, using loops and samples to create dynamic pop songs.
