Enter into the world of Budget Instruments Plus Singers! (B.I.P.S.) What lies before you is a land of cardboard boxes, kazoos, cups, butter knives, and a half-working banjo from the internet.
"sound" was written and performed for UC Santa Barbara. It honors the ecosystem of the university. Storke Tower's carrilon rings accross a woodwind duet while people walk by enjoying the campus's beautiful weather. Headphones recommended!
