Flyer for the performance

For this performance, Stolen Light and Goose were joined by Michael Tumolo, Jennifer Biedendorf, Rebecca Lunceford, and Paul, a friend of Sc'Eric's whose last name I can't remember. This performance was inspired by Sc'Eric, who worked at the campus radio station and asked if I had ever considered the idea of a noise hymn. I found the idea intriguing and did a performance in three parts, tracing the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden, a second segment where we read the sins of the area through newspaper stories over the air with music mixed in representing Christ in Gethsemanie, and a segment of reconciliation between man and Deity. In the path of life, trials with joy combine until exaltation. "There must needs be opposition in all things."
