    Abstract:
    This article explores the relationship between the visual staging and the musical score in "Lost Objects," a staged oratorio by Bang on a Can composers Julia Wolfe, David Lang, and Michael Gordon. A unique vertical staging coupled with a multi-aggregate, double-interval cycle in two of the movements create added meaning through their juxtaposition.
