Musician, writer and multimedia artist Jill Tracy has been a long-time FEARnet favorite thanks to her affinity for macabre and mysterious subject matter (check out our interview with Jill for lots of fascinating insights into her work). One of Jill's most popular projects is the “Musical Séance” series – which she debuted with musical collaborator Paul Mercer on Halloween 2007 – wherein audience members are invited to participate by bringing objects of personal significance and sharing their own stories. The result is an improvised interactive experience she describes as “spontaneous musical combustion.” The duo's performances have taken place in many fascinating locations, including abandoned asylums, caves, haunted castles, and even Anne Rice's Halloween Ball in New Orleans.
The next séance will be held at 9pm Febuary 24th at the Los Angeles mansion of Horace P. Dibble, who made the papers of his day when he stabbed an apparently maniacal co-worker to death in self defense. Dibble was acquitted of murder charges and went on to live an apparently peaceful life, but the site (shown above), today a historical monument, is reportedly haunted. Special guests at this show include music duo Dirt Bird, and author Colin Dickey (Cranioklepty: Grave Robbing and the Search for Genius and Afterlives of the Saints) who will discuss L.A.'s haunted history.
