Music: Song Stan Link
Dance: Jeramy Zimmerman
Stan Link is Associate Professor of Composition, Philosophy and Analysis of Music at Vanderbilt University. A composer of acoustic and electro-acoustic music, his work appears on Albany Records, Capstone, Pa's Fiddle, and Art Trail labels. Along with composition and theory, he teaches interdisciplinary courses on music, art, and film and is an active scholar with numerous publications on noise, silence, film music, digital aesthetics, and psycho-killers. Endless Song is inspired by a play by William Butler Yeats: "Land of Heart's Desire, Where beauty has no ebb. Decay no flood, But Joy is wisdom, time an endless song."
CatScratch Theatre was founded in 2000 by Jeramy Zimmerman, Jessica Hirst, Krissie Marty and Lisa Hetzel. CatScratch Theatre first danced on the Washington DC Metro system and has since performed in non-traditional places such as the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage and Chateau Cazals in southeastern France, as well as in more traditional concert dance venues. In 2002, Jeramy, through CST Productions, produced "On the Edge: Downtown Festival of Modern Dance," Washington DC's first festival devoted solely to modern dance. In 2003, Jeramy returned to NYC and brought CatScratch Theatre with her. CatScratchers emeriti can be found in such exotic places as Honduras, Nicaragua, Washington DC (and outlying Virginia) and NYC (all boroughs). Though devoted to public performance, none have ever been arrested while part of a CST-produced event. In addition to Jeramy and Jessica (though now far-flung), current CatScratchers are Deborah Karp, Dana Reed, Allison Vinal and Ashley Wailes-Wallace.
