dc.description.abstract And the TV Said..., scored for actress, digital media, and sextet, is a music theater piece set to Jason Ludlow's script of the same name. The script is written for two characters: a woman and her television. The role of the woman is performed by the actress and the role of the television is divided amongst and performed with music by the sextet. This work follows in the genre of Peter Maxwell-Davies' Eight Songs for a Mad King, Luciano Berio's Laborintus II and Sinfonia, and Aaron Jay Kernis' Goblin Market. The pervading themes throughout the work are oversaturated media and sensory overload. The digital media, which is noisy and oversaturated, is composed entirely of samples of sounds recorded from televised media. In this way, the electronics and the role of the television are inseparable. The female character rambles on incoherently, trying to maintain a conversation that is nonsensical, but not meaningless, until in the end she is irrevocably fused with her own TV persona. The script of And the TV Said… was written by Jason Ludlow in 2009, and is the most recent culmination of the writer's and composer's collaborations. iii en_US
