Work Overview

In the work Pretty Lightweight, the music plays alongside a laughter track. Although pre-recorded laughter is normally used to highlight jokes on television shows and in novelty tunes, the joke/laugh, stimulus/response model has been largely avoided here in attempt to get the music and the laughter track to cancel each other's semantic weight out.
