Gilgamesh: Who Saw the Deep

Better late than never... If you're free this Thursday or Saturday evening, check out a show running in the DC Fringe Festival for which I did sound and "music" work. Gilgamesh: Who Saw the Deep is a retelling of the world's oldest recorded story, an ancient Sumerian legend about a mighty king's struggle with human mortality and his quest to overcome death.

My "sound" work consists largely of organized, improvised, ensemble-generated sound environments that underscore a large portion of the scenes. I had a great time working on this show, and I hope to use some of the same performer-generated/improvisatory techniques in more of my composing.

Remaining performances are this Thursday at 10pm and Saturday at 7pm at the Source Theatre:

1835 14th St. NW
Washington, DC 20009
(on 14th St NW between S and T)

Thur, 7/24 - 10pm
Sat, 7/26 - 7pm

U Street Metro (Green Line) 2.5 blocks away
