The piece's themes will be heavily influenced in memory of Bill, showcasing the indomitable human spirit, adventure, and nature, effective altruism, organ donation, and mental health awareness.

Follow Rarecas Bonds and the famed Memphis street performers, the Beale Street Flippers, in their work to uplift the downtown Memphis community and support their members, not just through their journeys as explosively talented dancers, but through the complexities of life in urban Memphis.
Unheard Sounds is a voyeuristic approach to exploring the regional differences of music in
Arkansas through the artists's perspective. It is similar to Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown, but
instead of the voyeurism experienced through Anthony's interpretation of the food, culture, and
people, it is our audience and what they feel through the music they hear and their perception of
the artists who create it. We will accomplish this through a tour of the regional music concerts of
Arkansas, guided by the artists performing there: their music, their story, and their sound.
