It’s 2011 and two American Apparel models are searching for their missing memory after a tragically fun nite. The play gets dark and surreal quickly, so lighting designer, Sarah Johnston, and I worked to craft the feel of this increasingly eerie American Apparel. There were dozens of intense jolts of electricity (hence the title) which carried itself into the musical arrangements. There were short electrical sparks used as percussive elements throughout this driving score along with a variety of other electronic instruments.
