Brass Ring is a collection of fragments from the last 30 years of our cultural conscience, composed into kaleidoscopic stories using both rehearsed material and live composition. Pulling from sources such as news stories, interviews, viral videos, public service announcements, children’s television programming, social experiments, and office handbooks, Brass Ring examines how goals are created, how those goals evolve as we grow older, and the consequences of achieving them.
*Soundpainting is the multi-disciplinary sign language used for live composition, created by New York composer Walter Thompson. To date, Soundpainting comprises more than 800 gestures and is being used by hundreds of professional artists worldwide for the live composition of music, theater, dance, and visual art.
