Antigone

“Choi created an original score with an eclectic mix of music, including electroacoustic, ballad, jazz, odes with a contemporary American feeling, a gospel prayer to Dionysus and a rock beat in one dance. Also Choi applied Greek Traditional Music, which performed in grief for the dead since B.C 300-400, to prologue and curtain call. UNT College of Music (jazz) students recorded the instrumental parts, vocal parts are performed by theater students, and a student actor will play parts of the percussion score live on stage each night. This work was commissioned by UNT Theater Chair Andrew Harris.” -UNT Newsletter
