Enter SOUND HOUSE, a “multidimensional object” inspired by the haunted sound worlds of British composer Daphne Oram, electronic music pioneer and inventor of Oramics, a multi-strand sound-generating machine.  Sound functions as experiential road map here, carving out story amid distortions of time and space as Constance Sneed, Daphne’s present-day alter ego, investigates what it is to be invisible.

READ!  IN AMERICAN THEATRE and in THE BROOKLYN RAIL 

and in NEW MUSIC BOX IN STEPHANIE’S OWN WORDS!

“There is something Tom Stoppard-esque about the era-hopping intermingling of reality, fiction and art… [in] whimsical, melancholy SOUND HOUSE!” – The New York Times

“A multidimensional voyage through sound that sheds light on the invisibility of women..

Sound House is one of those plays that is at the same time utterly cerebral and incredibly romantic. With a spirit of experimentation as daring as Oram herself, the production introduces original characters and a fictional plot line that parallels, but also takes apart, Oram’s space/time continuum.” – Theatre is Easy

“Rare and refreshing!  Kieffer and Wolcott’s sound design is exceptional. ” – Exeunt

“a charming and intriguing evening of theater, music and movement.” – The Tribeca Trib
