about

CONSENSUS REALITY
the musical
ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK + VIDEO

Purchase includes download of the full album + private access to streaming of the video.


Consensus Reality is a musical in which multiple personal mythologies and aesthetics coexist, channeled through the surfaces and depths of rock n roll.

These songs tell a story that has been elaborated in a 20-minute video produced by Duggan + Prewitt. The songs have been specially prepared for this album release with new edits and new vocal performances. Both the album and video feature an exclusive song not included in the other format.

Created through both collaboration and isolation, Consensus Reality juxtaposes two individuals’ searches for consensual experiences of Self and Other. It is an attempt to expose the invisible forces of reality, explore identity through performance, and seek a new community.

Track Name: Gabrielle Duggan - White Girl
I saw a white girl
in the eyes of the world
and I wanted to be the one
and I wanted to be I
wanted to be next to her I

I can't imagine what
it would feel like
to go out and talk to other people
I guess I'll stay in tonight

Track Name: Neill Prewitt - In the Event
through your use of this product
you accept these terms & conditions
which guide how we use you
while you use it
for surfing
for networking

and in the event of misfortune
which we trust will never happen
we ask you — kindly
to maintain the upper hand
and so to determine
upon who they will depend
for succor
for mercy

catastrophe's the best thing that ever happened to this community
we were finally able to turn the waterfront into highrises
there's going to be a section of subsidized housing
it's going to look real nice

in the event
Track Name: Neill Prewitt - I Am Myself, And
I am myself
and there is this program which exists in relationship to myself
it's tracking my actions
and learning to be just like me

what a beautiful man
oh, such feeling

there's no surrogate for myself
which by tracking my actions
can learn the very subtleties of me

it's what you're doing
when you do
what you're doing

I am myself
and I am a person who exists in relationship to myself
I'm watching my actions
and making judgments on every move

there he goes again
gross
won't you look at him go again

although it's awkward
even predatory
I wonder if I wouldn't be better
off-loading my self-consciousness to a program

well, if I didn't have to read any terms & conditions
and it automatically updated itself

well... ooh yeah!
Track Name: Gabrielle Duggan - Banshee
there's a banshee in the wood
a soulless banshee
forever in the woods

lift your hands way up high
lift your heads in the sky
lift your arms overhead
lift your arms o(e')r your/'re dead
Track Name: Neill Prewitt - Back & Forth
I'm going back & forth on the same thing
over & over again

I want to go forward
Track Name: Gabrielle Duggan - what
(i can help you with that)

what can I help you with
what would you like to help me with
what if we helped each other
Track Name: Neill Prewitt - We Got People
we got people
so many people

never get so down on yourself
you forget you're like everybody else
never get so up on yourself
you forget you're like everybody else
