Scene from Within: Mark Applebaum’s Pre-Composition (2002) and Velimir Khlebnikov’s Mrs. Laneen (1913)

In these two works, separated by nearly a century, but strikingly akin in concept, the spectator/listener is invited into the psychical processes of another human being during a moment of heightened experience. For Pre-Composition, we are welcomed into the mind of a composer (Applebaum himself?) as he prepares his next piece. In Mrs. Laneen we enter the disordered mind of a woman in ill-health, possibly nearing death. The two pieces, presented together for the first time, offer a unique sound and theatre experience that presents a take on creativity and mental illness surprisingly consonant with current ideas in neuroscience.
