Mark DeChiazza and Steve Mackey build their fourth and most ambitious collaboration--an amalgam of live music, film, and dance.  The electric guitar sings the part of Orpheus in this contemporary take on the hero's journey to the underworld.  Pushing the popular rock vernacular of electric guitar and percussion to something stranger, Orpheus Unsung takes on the myth with a wordless musical and visual language.
