A complement to Homer, whose exquisite myth catapulted the bard himself into the realm of myth, Crampton fashions a performative poetics that performs its own brown, queer, and sublime reality.
Crampton’s work adopts its own distinct language, and Demon City uses that language to relate, in her words, an “epic poem” — a resonant narrative of apocalypse and transformation.
It’s often beautiful, but it’s confusing, and the layers of concept aren’t much help ... It’s Crampton channeling her own history into 25 bracing, punk minutes of post-everything, out-there, futurist electronic madness.
Demon City ... is a wonder of concision and represents another massive leap forward in her growth.
By seamlessly incorporating disparate collaborations into the fabric of this City, Crampton summons a greater collective strength than they’ve exhibited on their own.
