Time to work on the film score.....

This past week I had the pleasure of being in the recording studio with Elizabeth and actress Becca McCoy as they laid down some vocal tracks to be included in the film score. Reading the text/poem written by Maureen McDole, Becca adds the vocal layer the score calls for. To hear Becca recite Maureen's rich text is deeply moving and it is an honor to have her as part of this project. 

SPFestival 2016

The SPFestival 2016 kicked off this week and I was thrilled to attend the opening party with Elizabeth Baker. My site specific work, look/see {the view from here},  premieres on Sept. 17 as part of Our Town: A moving Dance Tour. Elizabeth composed the score for this new work which will take place at Face The Jury, a public art installation in downtown St. Pete. I want to offer the audience a chance to experience dance from different perspectives, to that end there will be various spots to view the dance and the score will be available to download on a viewer's smart phone during the performance or the work may be viewed in silence with the sounds of the city as accompaniment. Dancer Charlotte Johnson will have wireless bluetooth ear piece so that she can hear the music.
