New Recording of Crystal Tresses!

Greg Jukes made this new recording on my actual birthday last month – June 6. (By the way, that’s also D-day and the birthday of Tetris.) The piece, Crystal Tresses in the Sky is a short vibraphone solo he commissioned a couple years back. It’s something he can take on...

Very busy couple of weeks

June 5, the day before my birthday, Mike Feldman and I sat down with Zach Herchen to go over his latest sound design work for Seafarer. It’s fantastic. The world of the film was starting to emerge in the last round, but this time he really got into the details,...

Greg Jukes and a new recording of Crystal Tresses

Today is my birthday, and Greg got me an awesome present. Today he’s playing the vibraphone solo I wrote for him, Crystal Tresses in the Sky in Evansville. He commissioned the work a couple years ago, and played a couple times when we were both back at Peabody. He’s gotten...

Robert’s singing my song this Saturday

Robert Maril is just plain awesome, in case you were wondering. He’s stepped in at the last minute to sing my setting of He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven this Saturday. It’s a sweet little love song, and even though it’s so short it’s one of my favorite things...

sound design and meeting on Summer’s Twilight scene 1 re-write

Last week saw me stuck sick in bed for a couple days, but also saw two good meetings. The first was with Rose Ginsberg, director and chief brainstorming-buddy for Summer’s Twilight. I’ve finished a significant re-write of the libretto of the first scene, and wanted to bounce it off of...

“Making Of” vs. “Actual Thing”

Eddie Izzard did this British political ad, a party political for the Labour Party. It’s good. But the ‘making of’ video is totally amazing, and they just made it as a side thing to what they were ‘officially’ doing. It’s more convincing, it’s funnier, and it’s even got the key...

Rhymes with Opera is rehearsing in my house

I’ve known all the musicians of Rhymes With Opera for years. They’re great. They’ve mounted some really creative productions in really interesting places. Right now they’re getting ready for their next show, Book of Gazes, which I’m going to see on May 17 at The Tank in New York. They’re...
