Strange Monsters: A Music & Words Collaboration

Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

Strange Monsters is a music and words collaboration of imaginative fiction and poetry set to contemporary jazz. Read by actors, Stufflebeam's stories unveil a world where the fantastic is familiar. In these six tracks, each set to one of Brewer's ethereal compositions, women challenge what's expected of them and find their voices in unexpected places: Rumpelstiltskin's wife endures police questioning regarding the disappearence of a local boy; a group of deadbeat friends in love with the same woman encounter the skeletons of various extinct animals on a doomed camping trip; and a cursed ballerina longs to do nothing but dance while forced to contend with two men: her obsessed fan and the jealous director of the ballet company. Brewer wrote each musical composition to accompany each story; these layered pieces utilize a blend of traditional small-group jazz with clarinet, bass clarinet, flugelhorn, and unique sounds created by silverware, various shakers, and even Stufflebeam and Brewer's cat.
