This is a looking back entry for this spring. Video collaboration with Benoit Granier was featured at the Athena Festival on 3/15/2009 at Murray State University (Murray, KY USA). Curator for the multimedia concert on the festival was Sebrina Pena Young.
Post Script: Good friend of mine Benoit Granier and I were chatting about music and just life in general one night. The topic of us collaborating on a video project came up. Knowing Ben and I had very different artistic viewpoints, I was a little hesitant to commit to the project. I did not want to ruin our friendship over a collaboration after all. But I was also interested to see how this project would turn up with our very different approaches. To make a long story short, he made the 3D animation and I made the music for ‘Made in…”. It was a fast and efficient project – we completed the piece in a few very intense days. Through the process, we became more familiar with each other’s working mode and got to communicate a lot. We could see how we might improve the piece, but we decided to create a suite of related pieces instead of going back to fix the one we had just made. It is a tiring thing to have to go back and fix things. Usually for me, when a piece is done, it is pretty much done. But anyway, it was a great experience.
Four of my works will be featured on this concert on 10/19 at 7:30 PM in the Reynolds Recital Hall at Montana State University. The Sunday Night Multimedia Series is MSU Department of Music’s concert series combining electronic music, multichannel audio and live sound diffusion, video, animation, and live performance.
