"interlace [falling star]"

Hey, what do you know - Annex Theatre in Seattle is producing my new full-length play, interlace [falling star], and tonight is opening night! I wrote & directed the sucker, which we describe thusly:

"In this epic blend of science-fiction and fantasy, a mysterious amnesiac finds herself in the lobby of an infinitely tall building located in the center of the multiverse, the headquarters of the United Association of Interdimensionary Travelers. Her unexplained presence sets off a series of increasingly catastrophic events that not only compromise the security of the Association, but threaten to unravel the entire fabric of creation itself! Can a superhero with a divine pedigree, an android companion, and archangels and devils together combine forces to help 'Andrea Change' find her true identity, and prevent the impending apocalypse? Drawing on influences as diverse as the metaphysical explorations of Philip K. Dick, and the scrappy tradition of low-budget sci-fi television, interlace [falling star] is a unique saga of love, loss, and redemption."

I know, doesn't that sound ridiculously exciting? Tickets are now available for this fringe theatre sci-fi extravaganza, which you can see Friday and Saturday nights all throughout the month of August. For those of you who can't make it, you can read the script and get a big pile of MP3s from the soundtrack over on my web site.

The majority of the musics used in the play were provided by experimental ambient artist Pfly, and the tracks in question truly help establish a very otherworldly vibe for the show. Here are some samples:

Pfly - Domo
Pfly - Tongue Box
Pfly - Swallow The Pills

Recently on Comfort Radio:
Of Montreal - Faberge Falls For Shuggie
Peter Gabriel - Games Without Frontiers (Massive Attack/DB mix)
