So I was sorting through a digital mess of old audio files, and I came across a few samples from the 2004 production of A Mouthful of Birds, the incredible Charyl Churchill play – directed by Ian Belton. It was a really dark, apocalyptic production – voodoo and flying pigs and floating utensils. So, here, have a listen:
In the last year I have worked on a number of really amazing projects – a Two-headed Calf chamber opera, a project that took me to Peru and a chance to work with Ellen Burstyn to name a few highlights – and finally I’m getting a chance to post some sounds and music I created.
In the LISTEN section, you’ll find samples from a production of A Streetcar Named Desire at Southern Rep in New Orleans, some samples from the LAByrinth Theater production of David Bar Katz’s Atmosphere of Memory (directed by Pam MacKinnon), a collage of sounds from a production of Brecht’s In the Jungle of Cities (in Spanish, En La Jungla de Las Ciudades) directed by Gisela Cardenas, and some more samples of the chamber opera I wrote for the Two-headed Calf’s You, My Mother.
Hope you like!
You, My Mother, the Two-headed Calf’s two-part chamber opera performed at La MaMa, E.T.C. in February, was a great success – and an incredible collaborative experience (Kristen Kosmas/Rick Burkhardt and Karinne Keithley-Syers/myself. Directed By Brooke O’Harra. Performed by Mike Mikos, Laryssa Husiak, Beth Meyers and Kate Soper. Music performed by Yarn/Wire.
