How did Mira Calix die? What was Mira Calix Cause of death?

Mira Calix, an electronic musician and visual artist born Chantal Passamonte, died at the age of 52. Warp Records, the South African-British artist’s record label, announced her death on Monday (28 March). Let’s see How did Mira Calix die and What was Mira Calix Cause of death.

 

What happened to Mira Calix?

“Mira was not only a tremendously gifted composer and artist, but she was also an endearing, compassionate human who impacted the lives of all who had the privilege of working with her… In a very unique way, she stretched the boundaries of electronic music, classical music, and art.”

Calix was the label’s first female artist to sign. She recorded six albums with Warp, beginning with One on One in 2000 and concluding with Absent Origin in 2021.

“We are heartbroken to learn of the passing of our dear Mira Calix,” Warp Records said in a statement.

“Mira was not only a very accomplished artist and composer, but she was also a lovely, kind human who impacted the lives of everyone who had the honor of working with her,” the statement read.

They then praised her work, stating it “pushed the boundaries of electronic music, classical music, and art in a completely unique way.”

“We are so proud of her enormous creative output; her artwork, films, and music were a genuine representation of what an imaginative, pioneering, and loving spirit she was,” the statement said.

“She will be sorely missed by everyone at the label, both employees and artists.”

Absent Origin was described as “a polyphony of primarily distinct female voices kept together by throbbing baselines.”

 

How did Mira Calix die? Death cause

Mira’s cause of death is yet to be revealed. But there is speculation around the internet saying she died of a long and victorious battle with cancer. And also there are some speculations on Twitter claiming that she had a sudden heart attack. But no official information claiming either of these statements.

Like you, We’re wondering as well; we hadn’t followed her in a while, but she was still extremely active. Susumu Yokota’s cause of death was never announced if I recall correctly. Trish Keenan, a fellow WARP alum, died unexpectedly from pneumonia caused by swine flu.

The darkness continues. So sad to read about the passing of my old friend Chantal, otherwise known as Mira Calix on @WarpRecords – we met when she was producing music nights back in the early 1990s electronica scene and were friends ever since. Utterly heartbreaking

Patten says,

Mira Calix set, Warp lighthouse party, Oct 2000. Every window of the warehouse shaking from the heaviest bass this wide-eyed kid had ever experienced. FFWD 22 years & she was still shaking fixed structures into motion & breaking boundaries on the daily. Unforgettable artist. RIP.

Weird article. If she died of cancer it was obviously not a ‘victorious battle’. Her life was defeated by cancer!
