Andrew Schneider and his team follow up their revolutionary, OBIE award-winning tech-theater masterpiece YOUARENOWHERE with a mind-bending examination of what constitutes a single life and the endless possible outcomes at the precise moment of death.
Collaborators Alicia ayo Ohs, Alessandra Calabi, and Bobby McElver join Schneider to continue their exploration of hyper-precise trademark design. They command thrilling light and sound effects with deft physical performance alongside a rapid-fire flow of text that blends pathos and humor with intelligence and vulnerability. From the spellbinding chaos of digital machinations and pulsating sensory extremes emerges a poignant, shared consciousness perceiving where we are, how we got here, and what comes AFTER.
Check out the completed Kickstarter page for information on the use of 3D audio:
Wave Field Synthesis unlocks the possibility to explore these philosophical questions through perceptual experience and design – sensory overload and deprivation.
WAVE FIELD SYNTHESIS
We are working closely with EMPAC to replicate the design and construction of their new sound technology system – Wave Field Synthesis (WFS) . AFTER will be the first theatrical production in the world to use EMPAC’s design of WFS.
WFS seemingly does the impossible by creating a virtual sound source in space. It can be thought of as an auditory hologram – a holophone. The sound can move around you, hover close by your ear then move to the next row. It is no different than a sound source moving around you. It just happens that the source is not there.
AFTER runs through January 14 for more information go to the Public.. (Full disclosure, my significant other is a production team member on this piece)

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
