Dear Abyss supporters,

As you hopefully all have heard, Abyss was tremendously successful on many levels. We succeeded in challenging so many of the boundaries typically present around Yale events, Yale-New Haven events, collaborations between multiple schools at Yale, and of course, most importantly, the boundaries between multiple forms of live entertainment including classical music especially. We are eager to keep development of this show moving in the future, and have been taking small but important steps toward that goal. In the meantime, we wanted to link you to the soundtrack to the show, as promised: It is, of course, a live recording so everything is somewhat distant from the microphones but it should still be a clear document of the music from the show. We are combing through massive amounts of video now, eager to put something visual up on the website within a few weeks, which we will certainly alert you about as well.

Thanks so much for your support and belief in our project. Please get in touch with us about anything, as we owe the world to you.

    What do you know! We'll incorporate in image of you (or some other image if you want to keep your likeness private) into our visuals projections that occur during our show. The context for this will probably be terrifying though.
