Brainchild Part 3

Composer Mark So
Mars Desert Research Station, Utah, October 11 and LAXART, Los Angeles, October 25, 2015. Dominique Cox as Brainchild, and Julie Brody, Kate Brown, Mari Garrett, and Gabie Strong as the chorus.


Finding musicality within the language of the Brainchild text itself, Mark So has created a score for Part 3 comprised solely of the words on the page, arranged in open fields, dense clusters, and single lines to produce what So calls a “native” reading.
