Scratch Sound is an interactive performance utilizing custom-made scratch tickets that determine the mood of the improviser. Audience members are given scratch tickets with three circles and 10 possibilities including 8 basic emotions: (acceptance, anger, anticipation, disgust, joy, fear, sadness, surprise). Not all cards are winners; some scratches will reveal that you must “Try Again.” If “2X BONUS!” is exposed, the participant scratches another circle and receives double that emotion!
Scribe Send Sound
Audience members will be invited to send stories, poems and other writing to the band, before and during the show. New compositions will be created based on the messages received. Writers will also be invited to bring laptops and other mobile devices and write. The hope is to provide a space to create.
