The Consciousness

by Nique Content

Premiered Mon 10/4/21 7p

What does it mean for art if an artist's consciousness carries on after death? In "The Consciousness," Reece - a struggling music composition student - tries to extract and then plagiarize a symphony from the digitized consciousness of Theo Price, a dead and (mostly) forgotten composer. But the composer's creative prowess has not thrived in the afterlife, forcing Reece to reconstruct Theo's memories.
