Opening to Catastrophe

This piece was composed in the style of Young Jean Lee’s Theater Company for a hypothetical design of the short play Catastrophe, written by Samuel Beckett.  I imagined it as a prelude to this preparation of a play, hearing an orchestra tune up, getting the audience into the mindset of being at the theatre, but then abruptly reminding them that it isn’t all fun and games here.

Happy Listening!
