Graffiti crews are willing to risk anything for their art. Called vandals, criminals and even creative terrorists, graffiti artists set out to make their voices heard and alter the way people view the world. But when one crew finishes the biggest graffiti bomb of their careers, the consequences get serious and spark a public debate asking, "Where does art belong?"

Pre-show Soundscape - The play is set in Chicago and I wanted to avoid music in the beginning to make room for quotes that were said during pre-show. The soundscape is a journey through the city.
Police Sirens - Coming out of pre-show our Seven is chased by sirens onto stage pauses for a moment, and the a cacophony of sirens close in on him.
The End - As Seven finishes his last monologue the graffiti piece flies in as underscore comes up and snow falls. The sound of a graffiti blaster cues the lights out on the piece. Music by Aesop Rock
