Chantal Francesca Passamonte a.k.a Mira Calix Death – Obituary – Dead – Passed Away – What is Mira Calix Cause of Death.

Chantal Francesca Passamonte, known professionally as Mira Calix , a South African-born, British-based audio and visual artist signed to Warp Records has died , according to the following statements posted on social media.

The darkness most certainly continues. We literally just lost the amazing composer Philip Jeck, and I just heard of the death of musician Chantal Passamonte (1970-2022), professionally known as Mira Calix on Warp Records. I’m utterly shocked. We first met in the early 1990s when she was producing fanzines and setting up nights in London for the exploratory ambient music scene. I even attended her pagan wedding with a wonderful bunch of friends, and our paths frequently crossed over the years.
I remember being at a private event years ago at Tate Modern in London and she proudly and sneakily showed us the designer spoons she’d stolen from the kitchen!
In recent years she was producing more installation work and continued to explore new sonic regions as a woman in an often challenging male music world. Indeed, we were meant to be performing together in Berlin this very week. Farewell Chantal.
