Howdy folks! It's been a while since my last update. For the past couple months I have been working hard on a new project, which I am finally able and epically proud to announce - I am the Music Director and Arranger for Robert Wilson's new production, Sandman, an adaptation of ETA Hoffmann's classic tale. I am working, once again, with the ultra-talented Anna Calvi, who has written an all new suite of incredible songs.
I arrived in Düsseldorf, Germany a few days ago to begin rehearsals this week. The cast is fantastic, and it is sounding sooo goood! We will be rehearsing for the next couple months, and the premiere will take place May 3rd at Ruhrfestspiele, followed by a premiere in Düsseldorf May 20th at Schauspielhaus. If you are anywhere nearby, I highly recommend you come check it out. Anna and my voices are both very clear and LOUD!
Robert Wilson's work has been super inspiring to me throughout my art making life and many of the soundtracks are in my list of favorites. He has worked with most of the people I look up to the most, so I am absolutely thrilled to be part of this production!
Wish me luck!
Sending lots of love and positive vibes during these crazy times...
