Lint, the new strip cartoon opera project from composer Walter Hus is the ideal way to get to know the greatest cartoon genius of the last twenty years, Chris Ware. The book of the same name sketches the complete life story of a Jordan Wellington Lint (Acme Novelty Library Volume 20), who is remarkable for his wrong choices and missed opportunities. It was the leitmotivs, counterpoints and other musical elements in this ingeniously constructed cartoon that caught the attention of Walter Hus. Together with Angélique Willkie and Spectra Ensemble, he converts this fabulous work into a real cartoon concert.

Walter Hus is artist in residence at Namahn.
