Combinatorics is a series of essays and musical works dedicated to and about my father, the late mathematician Klaus G. Fischer. The essays were written in Virginia as I spent time with him in the last months of his life. They are about masculinity, growing up a girl, and how I related to my father through silence, mathematics, gardening and thinking.

The music for Combinatorics has been written together with Jacopo Bertacco aka “The Tide” in the form of our collaboration Mad Kate | the Tide.

Combinatorics is free to read on ISSUU, but if you have the means, please support independent publishing by purchasing Combinatorics as an enhanced eBook (music embedded) or hardcover.

The music for Combinatorics can be purchased without the essays from Bandcamp
