Q: How did you get your rockin' name Jabbewocky?
A: Since I have been asked after establishing my music from various individuals, no, I was not even aware of a dance or theater group of the same name, and have yet to be exposed to anything they have done. I can assume they pay a much more kid-friendly and less literary-accurate homage to the origin of the word. The artist name, "Jabberwocky" was born out of a fascination with logician Charles Dodgson. He invented a word to label a metaphorical creature which was used in his intellectual endeavors to represent nonsense which cannot be logically defined, something akin to the fictional personification of the Kantian noumenon. I'm assuming one out of every one hundred people will actually understand that answer, but it is the complete one. In laymen's terms, the thinker whose popular pseudonym, "Lewis Carroll," wrote "Through The Looking Glass," invented a creature that embodied that which makes no sense to the rational, and therefore can be a placeholder for everything and nothing. Even more simplified answer: I was interested in the mind of the dude who wrote Alice in Wonderland.
