I hardly do any work for the stage these days, but this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. Charles Cambpell and I have been something of a mutual appreciation society for the past few years, and it’s been a lot of fun to finally get the chance to work with his company Skewed Visions to create this performance piece. It’s very difficult to describe, and we’re still not sure exactly what we will have put together by the time it opens this coming Thursday, but suffice to say it’s unlike anything I’ve ever worked on before, and I’m grateful for the chance to explore such a wild and weird soundscape on the way there.

Excerpt of a recent music composition I'm developing for Birds of the Future, an experimental performance piece by Skewed Visions. It’ll possibly appear in various iterations throughout the show. A version or two might feature live accordion performance, and/ or the original audio flipped around backwards. Hey-o.
Though it might seem a slam dunk, the final title of this piece may not in fact eventually be “Chug-A-Chug”. There’s an argument to be made that somewhere in the vast recesses of the English language, there may lurk a better title.
Most of my music and sound these days is synched with something on some screen or other, but every once in a while I’m tempted back into theater work like a retired gunfighter called in to take out one last man. Sam Landman’s original play “Dream County” opens this coming Thursday at the Twin Cities Horror Festival. Thanks to Kevin’s generous loan of his euphonium, I was able to capture the refined, graceful tone of the show for a fanfare cue. I’d also like to mention that I’m available for session work, if you think you can afford me. More info on “Dream County”: http://www.tchorrorfestival.com/dream-county.htm
“Some people recall watching Cousin Clem's Magical Couch Fort every Saturday morning as kids. Others have never seen an episode, claiming the tragic series finale is nothing but urban myth. Somewhere between real and imaginary lies Dream County, a whimsical world where Cousin Clem would hide away in. We present the finale as it supposedly happened.”
