This innovative, hour-long performance is a perfectly distilled and seamlessly interwoven capsule of art and information that inspires self-reflection.
“Tylor Neist’s dramatic chamber-ensemble score controls the tone of the evening marvelously”
– Marty Hughley, The Oregonian

Further powered by live orchestra, electronic soundscapes, spoken word, theater magic, Portland Center Stage’s intimate Ellyn Bye Studio will come alive with possibility.

Myles is a musician who also happens to be Deaf. His search for ways to bridge his passion for music with his Deaf identity led him to develop technology that enables sound to be experienced as light and vibration.
He is now using this technology to show how performing arts can be made more inclusive and engaging for the Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing.
