"This soundtrack is digitally created and composed by Moran, as are the visually stunning slides and set. The show also features excellent sound and lighting design by Andrew Keister and Jonathan Spencer, respectively. It all coalesces into a beautifully orchestrated techno-opera."

A multimedia opera by John Moran - spanning the Egyptian & Tibetan Books of the dead, interspersed by a day in the life of Second Avenue in New York City.
Technically demanding with multiple projection surfaces downstage & upstage of the actors. Haunting, arresting, at times hopeful or melancholic - John's work is brilliant and leaves a lasting impression.
