"Static... A story that trickles like a warm, trippy Jim Morrison poem into a dark, colder ocean, accompanied by live original music reminiscent of an old CD by 'The Cure.' A beautifully crafted masterpiece interweaving theater, music, and moving pictures. *****"
- Ian Pickles & Co. Media, Edinburgh Festival Fringe
"...Orignal and mesmerizing. This wasn't your typical stage production."
-Analog Artist Digital World
"The best stories are personal, yet universal. STATIC has that combination."
"Listeners will find themselves hypnotized and held warmly by the dark, lustrous tones."
-Ground Control Magazine
"Very touching, heartfelt story ... performed through both wonderful performances, great storytelling and music."
- Rob, Edinburgh Fringe Review
STATIC was conceived by actor / playwright Conor Kelly O’Brien after being inspired by the music of New Orleans musician, Daniel Amedee, who writes and performs under LIGHT SOUND.
