The S2 Concept: Fan Guided Improvisation

The S2 Concept: Fan Guided Improvisation

A user’s guide for the uninitiated, for UM’s “Stew Art Series” concept, (AKA the S2).  At one point or another, every music fan has desired to affect the outcome of a live concert. From holding up a poster with your favorite song scribbled in sharpie, the “request” is as old performance art itself.
