The White City selected for the 2014 NMTC!

Added on by Avi Amon.

Julia and I are humbled and excited to announce that our show, The White City, was selected for development as part of the 2014 National Music Theater Conference! We'll be spending a few weeks this summer workshopping the show and learning from everyone we meet. Can't wait for the process to start.  

Check out the press release on PLAYBILL and visit the O'Neill website for more information, show dates, etc.

Lil' Sound Design Party

Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.

I had the pleasure of working on the first iteration of this show with writer/director, Annie Levy, last year.  It's certainly come a long way and is now paired with another show directed by Jay Stern.  Both pieces deal with themes of identity, family, and mythology and as someone who is exploring his own ancestry, I find them particularly interesting.

Developing sound and music cues for both shows was a lot of fun! I love using found sound and scouring the interwebs for all sorts of goodies to throw into the mix. We also had the opportunity to explore the Latvian Daina song/poetic form, and I composed several tunes, setting Annie's text to music.

Both pieces turned out beautifully and if you're around this weekend, get your tickets here.
