Michael Zapruder's 'Pink Thunder' project blends poetry, free-verse pop, and hard-wired found art
At Amnesia, it'll be a duo with backing tracks and audience participation. "Honestly, I think it can be hard to listen to these one after another if you've never heard them before," he explains. "It's a lot of new information. Without the help of familiar forms, you're dealing with new sounds but also like, 'where is this thing going?'" To help with that, there will be samples and audience members will likely be invited to come up and trigger different sounds during the show. A mad scientist approach to live music.
"Even with everything that's going on, the main thing is that I'm a musician, and that's why I did this," says Zapruder. "It's to clear the way for these songs to get through to people. The music is the center. I want people to hear it and be affected by it. But that probably goes without saying."
