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.

I wanted to take a moment to honor the passing of Earl Cassorla, co-proprietor (with his brother Steven) of Battle Mountain, NV’s Roller Coaster Fireworks and subject of the short documentary “Boomtown”, which I had the pleasure of working on a while back.
I got to meet Earl when the film screened at the Minneapolis-St Paul International Film Festival in 2017. It’s always great to meet people in person after staring at them on my computer screen during weeks of postproduction work— especially documentary subjects— and Earl turned out to be the same softspoken, endearing presence I’d expected.
I’m happy that the film is here to commemorate Earl and Steven’s obsession and dedication. Below I’m posting the completed short, for which I provided sound edit, mix, and a couple of original musical compositions. Rest in peace, Earl.
