dc.description.abstractThe dead painter's son is a two-act musical for the stage. Set in Atlantic City, New Jersey in the early 1940s, the story concerns an acclaimed magician's descent into insanity. The music mostly exhibits the styles of popular song and swing, while some sections employ polytonality and free atonality. What makes the musical unique is its blending of comedy with horror, as well as its complete authorship by one person; the book and lyrics are written by the composer.en
