What indeed! Allow me to share some news with you…..
Symphonic Stories. Sunday March 18 at 2 p.m. Benaroya Hall, Seattle.
First of all we have Symphonic Stories happening on March 18 at 2 p.m. This is the biggest moment in my career to date – no pressure! My symphonic work Artist and The Muse will be premiered by a 40 piece orchestra conducted by David Sabee, along with six other works by six amazing composers who are all dear friends of mine. This is going to be an amazing concert. You must attend. My parents are flying all the way from Aus to be there so I can’t imagine you have a better excuse than they had! In all seriousness, is there anything better than hearing new works by amazing composers performed by brilliant musicians? I think not! Buy tickets here.
Silent Film Project. Thursday April 5 at 7 p.m. Uptown Theater.
What happens when you bring together SIFF, Moisture Festival, SJCE and the SCA? Awesomeness, that’s what happens. We are launching an annual competition for filmmakers and composers. Filmmakers will create a silent film. Composers will score it. The SJCE will perform the score. SIFF/SJCE/SCA will judge the films and the winner will screen at SIFF! Amazing.
On April 5 we will be launching this project with a great night out. Three composer from the SCA and three composers from the SJCE will be composing scores for six established silent films by filmmakers such as Orson Welles and Viking Eggeling. The scores will be performed by the SJCE. The Moisture Festival will be joining the party and providing additional entertainment throughout the night. It is going to be a fun night!
Composer Choreographer Collaboration. Mid-Late April. Location TBD.
Four composers are paired with four choreographers and wonder follows. My composer is Ileigh Reynolds with Animate Objects Physical Theater. She is incredible! We are having so much fun working together. The working title of our piece is Parallels and we’re exploring the subject of choices and obstacles. This will also be performed by the SJCE. More information to come!
In addition to all this, I am working on the horror film of teen filmmaker Ethan Seneker. The film is called SLicE and it is fantastic (not to mention scary). It will no doubt be in a film festival near you soon. I will keep you posted.
So I have a lot going on. It is awesome and stressful at the same time. I love it. I really appreciate your support. If you can do three things for me, I would so appreciate it.
1. Please come to at least one of these performances (if you’re around).
2. Tell people about these shows!
3. Please like my professional facebook page. I am almost at 100 “likes”!
Thanks again. More soon!
