PANDEMONIUM INSPIRES WORKPLACE MUSICIANS

As if tapping your pen on your notebook wasn’t enough entertainment for your colleagues, imagine an entire orchestra of office-supply noise-makers!  That’s what happened at the Adrienne Arsht Center when staff members were challenged to assemble their own “WORK-estra” by using regular, day-to-day items like staplers, scissors and, of course, the multipurpose rubber band (makes for great guitar sounds!)—all in celebration of the U. S. premiere of Pandemonium, the long-awaited new show that will be taking over the Ziff Ballet Opera House September 16 – 26.

After a two-week competition, the winner came from the Center’s Production Department.  Ross Labrie created his very own score entitled “Prelude to a Load-Out for Miscellaneous Workshop Percussion.”  Well, perhaps the fact that he is a Sound Technician gave him an edge! Check out his stellar performance here http://www.vimeo.com/14186085 and be dazzled by the everyday objects that made such beautiful music.

And to continue this pandemonium beyond the Center’s offices, the Adrienne Arsht Center has joined local radio station LITE FM to find South Florida’s best WORK-estra!  The challenge, similar to our very own internal competition, is to find the office that most creatively makes music using simple office items.  To find out more on how you can enter, visit http://www.litemiami.com/contests/osb-a.aspx and let the orchestrated chaos begin!
