Homestuck: A Tribute Concert
Based on the webcomic by Andrew Hussie
Homestuck (2009 – 2019) is a multimedia webcomic created by Andrew Hussie, which as well as illustrations, utilizes music, animations, games, and many more elements to tell its story. The basic story premise features a group of kids who play a videogame that destroys the earth and they have to beat the game to build a new world.
My intention for the project was to put together a concert, inspired by the music and animations, in the form of a musical tribute for Wembley Stadium. This show would involve a group of musicians who are dressed as the characters from the story, as well as an orchestra and DJ.
A video giving a demo of how the music, animation might be remixed and enhanced with lights and staging, can be found in the MA Theatre Design Cinema Room.
