Melody of Chaos

The Melody of Chaos performance is the first stop of the choir's Spontaneous Combustion Choir World Tour of Los Angeles. The Choir will perform and invite the audience to participate in the collaborative creation of spontaneous music!
Melody of Chaos, an evening of free-spirited and psychologically intense visual and performing art, is coming to Santa Monica, CA on Saturday, January 17, 2015. The event features the work of Linda Carmella Sibio, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 1977 and is known for her cathartic performance and visual art that explores madness and creativity. Sibio is very much interested in the fringe of society and how it affects culture as a whole. Her work addresses strong social themes such as homelessness, mental illness, suicide, mass murder, gangs, drug addiction, and prostitution.

The evening will start with an original new performance piece by Sibio. A month-long art exhibit will also kick off... Schizophrenic Brain Trust will feature a 12-foot paper mâché brain sculpture and 26 meticulous pen and ink drawings, which tell the story of a dysfunctional yet uniquely beautiful brain. Jacobine van der Meer, aka The Brutal Poodle, will conduct a performative auction of the paper mâché brain at the opening night event. Bids for the brain sculpture will start at $500.
