An interview with composer and librettist Matt Test about the music of RUNG, the final show in Curious Theatre Branch's 2013-2014 season. A loose-grip mash up of Frankenstein, Noah's Ark, and dilettante epistemology, RUNG is an experimental chamber opera about an obsessive recluse building a body for a disembodied voice. The creation may be a failure, but the failure is quite a creation.
