TV opera performed live on Berkeley Public Access Television, channels 28 and 33 (on Comcast cable).

Though it might be hard to tell, this was the culmination of months of work, utilizing a wide array of orchestration and electronic devices.   I went through hell putting it together and it went live on air in October 2013.   Some people called in and asked the station operators, "what is this?"

Extensive text, truly bizarre notations, an experiment in every sense of the word.   If you like your public television abstract, bizarre, nonsensical, disaffected and political, well, you might have found something you'll enjoy.
