I found this piece by searching “youth produced pieces” and tagged the word “art”. How is a toothbrush related to art you ask? Because this piece is incredibly creative and original. It follows a conversation between two friends about how bad the others breath is. The dialects of the voice actors make it feel as though you are eavesdropping on a casual conversation. With the absence of background noise or music, the male voices in the piece are strong, dominant, and impossible to ignore. The producers of this piece have taken an ordinary and boring ritual (brushing your teeth) and turned it into a fun and enjoyable thing with a twist that you’ll never see coming. Personally, knowing the teens that produced this piece makes it all the more hilarious. This piece was made possible by the Fast Forward Program at the ICA. You can hear this piece along with other teen produced audio on zumix radio. Check zumix.org for scheduling.
