In 1961, the polymathic songwriter Connie Converse grew disillusioned with music and New York, packed her bags for Ann Arbor, and eventually disappeared. Her home recordings from the 50s have only recently come to lightvulnerable, literary songs about loneliness, sexual longing, and bad creditbut they were unclassifiable at the time and she vanished without an audience or album to her name.

A Star Has Burnt My Eye", is a multimedia meditation from songwriter and guitarist Howard Fishman. Three other musicians who perform and consider Converses music and life, pondering what it meant, and still means, to be an outsider artist, join Fishman. A treasure trove of recently discovered artifactspersonal letters, diary entries, poems, along with first-person recollectionscome to life alongside intimate performances on guitar, piano, violin and upright bass in tribute to this enigmatic songstress whose fate still eludes.

A Star Has Burnt My Eye had its world premiere at The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) as part of the 2016 Next Wave Festival, where it sold out its run and was a New York Times Critics Pick.
