"Fables" is a creative work which combines music, dance, and theater into a complete multi-media event. The musical portion of the work, the texts, and stage directions are documented in this the sis. The music was realized on electronic tape using the analog Moog synthesizer and the digital Apple lie computer. The tape and slides used for performance are available through arrangement with the composer.

The focus of "Fables" is a story of two characters and a day in their lives. This story line is interspersed with dances which comment on and are a diversion from the dreamlike atmosphere of the main story. The overall idea of the project is that of a commentary on and an observation of modem life in a non-narrative surreal context.
