One of the things that struck me as I watched a rehearsal was the sound. There was music and sound in there that I couldn't identify. Lessa chose to use music by a number of artists local to her hometown of Detroit. Detroit's a city with rich musical history - it was the foundation of Motown and has its roots in jazz. Of course Eminem is the most recent version of Detroit's musical history, but there's a lot of interesting music that the Arc:Hive project brought to the table.
Frank Pahl's Scavenger Quartet provides some of the sonic background for the show.
We also listened to a little Audra Kubat, another musician from Detroit.
Moving a little west to Chicago, we have some music by Wooden Rings.
