A public program, a social question, and a band continually reinventing itself, A Song to Change the World takes on the perpetual performance of the impossible. Using whatever strategies and approaches are at hand, it tries to answer the seemingly simple yet fiendishly complex question: What would that song be?

With earnest ambition constantly thwarted by ever-expanding possibilities, Maling and Ang are not deterred. Resisting the pressure, they embrace doubt and offer it as a solution. But how?

Lists, lots of lists. Lots of YouTube watching. Some drawing. Definitely t-shirts, stickers, posters. If they’re feeling brave, some playing of instruments but probably minimal singing. Most likely they’ll find other people to do that. Oh, and PowerPoint presentations, because they make things feel important.
