A BRAND NEW WORLD: kill the artist

Part of the CSA Performance Series: @ New Hazlett Theater

A BRAND NEW WORLD: kill the artist invites audiences to Cool World, where nothing is hotter than being cool and everything is packaged and sold for anyone to buy. One man challenges this reality, and now he must stand trial for his incendiary acts of arson. You are the witnesses, the judges, and the jury. The fate of this Wildfire Man rests in your hands.

A BRAND NEW WORLD: kill the artist is a sound art composition (experimental & traditional music) and film score. Specifically composed for a performer (not exclusively a musician) A BRAND NEW WORLD is a six-part composition featuring foley art, timed events, a visual score and a floor plan for the composition’s onstage set-up. Each object onstage carries an instrumental element in relation to the film: the paper airplanes, the radios, the coffee grinder. Field recordings and audio clips are woven throughout the composition to sustain the narrative. The performance element is paramount adding another layer to engage the audience directly.
