"What is it called when you make your dreams into reality?" Realization. When the world inside your head becomes the world around you. Or, when what you make the images in your head appear in front of you, thus putting them back into your head, but through a different lens. In Twin Towers, we get a glimpses of what is going on inside his head, a rarity I was was not confined only to theater. But what it is called when you actively work to make your nightmares a reality? This is what happens to one of the stars of the show when he realizes he has nothing to loose by revealing his true character.

We needed a way to show the explosion of the inner world onto reality, and we chose to do this with music. I asked my friend Grahame if he could write a dark song that would encapsulate the emotional state of the character. Grahame has been writing some compelling and intelligent techno, and I thought he'd be a great person to write the song. He asked me for some inspiration and I sent him some links to songs by Alien Vampires. Pretty dark stuff.

Kill The Authority - Alien Vampires

Soon I'll post what Grahame came up with for the scene!

The artistic process is the same- we have worlds in our heads, and they have to get out. Soon, we find ourselves face to face with the person we had in our heads. What happens when other people can hear the voices inside your head? The great thing about art is that once you make it, it isn't your anymore - art has legs, and immediately runs away with the audience (thank God!). It is the viewer who carries it to new places. I can't wait to hear what you think about the show. - Damian
