Sound designer, composer and electronic musician Enrico de Trizio—electronic music programmer on Dear Evan Hansen—created the music for Georgina Escobar's Then They Forgot About the Rest based a recording of his own fridge. Watch the video above to find out how he did it.
The play officially opened April 22 and continues its Off-Broadway run at INTAR Theatre through May 12. Directed by David Mendizábal, the new play takes place in a post-wisdom, future American Southwest.
"It's about memory and what's worth forgetting and what's worth remembering," says de Trizio of the apocalyptic new play. He decided along with Mendizábal, that the fridge featured in the play was the portal of the action in the play, and from that he created what he calls "the mind space tone."
In Then They Forgot About the Rest, two sisters coping with a recent trauma sign up to receive information about a soon-to-be-released new drug called Alleviate. Meanwhile, at an ad agency, advertisers are about to accept a new brief on the "forgetting pill." These two stories intertwine in a tale about the physical impact of memory, the company we keep, and the thing worth forgetting.
