Pete: "At some point in their rehearsals for the play, the three teenagers unearth documents that turn out to have belonged to Ray High, Leila’s father’s old studio partner. The documents refer to a crazy scheme to use the global wire network Ray saw as a young man to spread unifying music to everyone. (This matches my own vision for the Lifehouse Method, a computer-driven website through which people can commission their unique musical portrait.) They pore over the plans and realize that his scheme might be something they can make happen."

Included in the live version of the mini-opera.

 

We found this pile of paper
Written by the ether man
He hatched a mad old caper
He had a mad old plan

He'd turn us into music
He'd show us to our portals
He gathered wire and angels
To entertain immortals

Out on the endless, endless
Out on the endless wire
Out on the endless, endless
Out on the endless, endless
Endless, endless wire
We found hope and fire
A door without a key
Across the endless wire
'Cross electronic sea

He'd turn us into music
He'd show us to our portals
He gathered wire and angels
To entertain immortals

Out on the endless, endless
Out on the endless wire
Out on the endless, endless
Out on the endless, endless
Endless, endless wire

Out on the endless, endless
Out on the endless wire
Out on the endless, endless
Out on the endless, endless
Endless, endless wire...
