American Bacchae Infrasonic is a five-part audio series based on my stage play, American Bacchae.
Combining sound and the voices of Chicago actors, the series is an abstract interpretation of the play's text in order to elicit images and ideas that might remain hidden otherwise.
Mastered at Experimental Sound Studio, Chicago, by Alex Inglizian.
