The Corpus Illuminata Exposition of Anatomic Interpretation is proud to announce and welcome a special honored guest to it’s 5th annual event…composer, musician, storyteller, and sonic archaeologist JILL TRACY (San Francisco). Since 1995, Jill Tracy has garnered multiple awards and a passionate following for her eerie and beautiful cinematic music, sophisticated lyrics, old-world glamour, and curious passion for strange tales. She has been hailed by the LA Weekly as the “cult darling of the Underworld,” and San Francisco Chronicle has named her the “femme fatale for the thinking man.” With six albums to her credit, her dark seductive music has appeared on CBS, NBC, PBS, numerous independent and feature films, and was used by Showtime as the “Final Requiem” to promote the wildly anticipated last season of Dexter.

Within Corpus Illuminata on Friday August 14th, Jill Tracy will share her intimate experiences with the renowned Mütter Museum in Philadelphia, the nation’s foremost collection of medical oddities, to which she became the first musician in history to receive a grant to compose within the museum itself. Then on Saturday August 15th, she will close the exposition with a rare solo performance within the gallery amidst the anatomic/medical-inspired artwork.
