Unlikely heroes often emerge from the most unlikeliest of places. A couple of years back he orchestrated a series of email collaborative recordings by artists from around the world titled, Exquisite Corpse Audio Chain Letter. I was fortunate enough to have a few woefully, inadequate contributions included in these projects but, and far more important, I was made aware of several artists and composers I had not yet heard of.
While the complete list might make for a very interesting post one day, there is one artist who is inspiring far beyond her musical abilities.
The premise of the project was to create a one minute piece of music to be attached to a growing body of work until it reached 8 minutes. You were given a series of email addresses for those wanting to contribute and then told to only listen to the last couple seconds of what was sent you, add your Exquisite Corpse Audio Chain Letter 177 - Various - Exquisite Corpse Audio Chain Letter Volume 3then pass it on.
As the project carried on and the pool of contributors began to shrink, you started to see some of the same names popping up over and over again in your inbox. Frequently, the last contributor to send me their addition was Laetitia Schteinberg.
Having heard a couple of her releases, as anyone who may have read any previous posts knows, I now had to hear and read everything I could find. And this is where this post starts. Laetitia is a transgendered woman, an inspiring composer working in a variety of genres and an outspoken advocate for gender equality and human rights. While she struggles continue to avoid deportation, her case has begun to gain support from the international LGBT community at large and through more dedicated and understanding advocates within the Swedish immigration system.
She has also received unwavering support for a growing network of musicians and artists who have released various consciousness raising and financial support events and statements. While results from her second hearing were encouraging, this is still a grave injustice waiting to be righted. Throughout this ordeal, Laetitia has continue to use her voice and her Kako Da Se Radujem - Radiša Trajković Đani - Ta Žena as a clarion call for greater action for universal human rights everywhere.
Please, sign the petition and add your voice to the millions across the world who support those who face daily discrimination, humiliation, hatred, imprisonment and even death from intolerant citizens, religious bigotry and dystopian governments worldwide. For in the end, love and tolerance must carry the day. While by no means meant to be a definitive overview of her sounds, Exquisite Corpse Audio Chain Letter 177 - Various - Exquisite Corpse Audio Chain Letter Volume 3 are many of the compositions Estrella - Schumann* - Pierre-Laurent Aimard - Carnaval • Études Symphoniques find myself returning to again and again.
