In the spring of 2017, MFA Student at Illinois State, Kristin Schoenback approached me about writing music for her production of Oedipus. Throughout this adaptation by Ellen McLaughlin the chorus plays an integral role in the story telling. Through the music, we tried to convey the chorus’ suffering. They were so moved by their pain that it was transcended into song.
