An interactive play in which the audience takes on the roles of newly recruited special agents who must infiltrate the mind of a brainwashed agent in order to restore him to his old self. Audience members must solve a series of puzzles that involve separating false memories from true ones, identifying scents, and piecing together a music box to play segments of a song in the correct sequence. The Institute was part of the Game Play Festival in 2015 at the Brick Theater in Brooklyn, NY and was made possible by the ITP-Google Experiments in Storytelling Grant.

I occasionally write and record music for various projects, some of which can be found below.
“Distrust” – the infernal collection soundtrack
“Save the queen” – in media res
This is an incredibly goofy track I recorded for “In Media Res”, a live game by Sharang Biswas and Brendon Trombley, performed at Pioneer Works in September 2017. It’s propaganda music for the queen of a beehive.
“Brian’s song” – The Institute
Diegetic song from The Institute, an interactive play about a shady organization the researches psychic phenomena. This song was used in a music box puzzle and was featured in a memory-hacking scene.
The Institute was a part of The Brick Theater’s 2015 Game Play Festival.
