Rock 'n' rollers Aloud are proud to announce their multimedia stage show debut, I Just Want to Witness, premiering at Berklee College of Music’s first-class new venue Cafe 939. I Just Want to Witness is a live production that re-imagines Aloud’s new CD Fan the Fury. The show is currently being developed by Aloud and young filmmaker Johnathan Carr.
The CD Fan the Fury was released on the band’s own Lemon Merchant Records label in March of this year. The album is a dynamic collection of rock songs, an emotionally charged dichotomy of passionate rebellion and contemplative acceptance, with a common thread running through all 13 tracks. For Aloud, I Just Want to Witness is an opportunity to increase the visceral value of Fan the Fury. The collaborators are embellishing on the CD’s themes of struggle, perseverance, injustice, and love by pairing live performance of the CD with video projections and theatrical lighting.
Johnathan Carr, a recent Emerson graduate, is designing and overseeing the creation of projected video for the piece, and is excited to have Boston-based animator Timothy Scholl and NYC-based filmmaker Erin Bowser on his team. Carr is exploiting the dynamic nature of this seemingly simple rock album with his team's dramatic visualizations.
I Just Want to Witness is Aloud’s first-ever live show collaboration, and the up-and-coming rock outfit hopes to tour the work to black-box theatres and performance art venues around the U.S. in 2009.
