REMOVABLE PARTS the “absolute highlight” of Opera Grows in Brooklyn

Parterre Box praised Corey Dargel’s Removable Parts, calling it the “absolute highlight” of the Opera Grows in Brooklyn concert on July 9th, 2010 at Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, NY:

The absolute highlight of the evening for me was an amazing work about love and voluntary amputation.  Composer and singer/songwriter Corey Dargel and pianist Kathleen Supové presented their song cycle/rock show/performance art piece titled “Removable Parts,” featuring Mr. Dargel singing, his voice oddly similar to Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie.  The texts, also written by Mr. Dargel, have the most jarring combination of sweetly true love and disgusting details of the wish for amputation of healthy limbs.  The experience was an intense, heartfelt, funny, emotional piece of contentious individuality and somehow without any hint of sarcasm.
