Solace No Solace

On April 11, 2010 my spouse & collaborator in metal and life, Chris Matzigkeit, died at 29 of a heart attack. This video is a tribute to him featuring photos I snapped and a poem I composed, music he wrote and the visionary camera work of Warren Dean Fulton. All there is, these fragments time leaves us, his shifting presence in my dreams, his mourned-for absence in my existence. How art does not amend, but somehow consoles in its very acts of survival and transformation.
