Self Quartet: Beginnings for Summer Film Scoring

FullSizeRender_2 IMG_1759 IMG_1764 IMG_1766

This summer (it’s already pretty hot in Connecticut, so starting NOW), I am composing an original film score for the soon-to-be-screened, “Get Your Shit Together, Zeus,” by fellow VCFA community member, Jochen Künstler. This autumn, Jochen will complete his MFA in Film from Vermont College of Fine Arts, also home for the MFA in Music Composition program from which I am a proud alumnus. The images above represent a portion of my pre-composing as I sketch cues for this reed quartet combination of A Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, and Bass Clarinet. These timbres will provide a wide variety of colors and moods depicting the various sensibilities I am audiating-worship organ, bluesiness, jazz, Gospel, and aleatoric dreamscapes and abstractions derived to and fro, including certainly, sojourns of an electroacoustic nature. But one never knows where one’s path of process will take them. A very illuminating journey, for sure.

Massive Energetic Shift 040916

A three hour “Massive Energetic Shift” occurred on April 9th, 2016 at 2:00 am EST remotely communicating a message of peace, love, surrender, forgiveness, healing, and powerful vibrations being directly sent to individuals through their energetic field. Large amounts of energy moved through individuals during this time as an amplification system. Anyone in a field of awareness, if surrendered enough and awake while it happened felt blissful love, peace, and an urge to celebrate. “Massive Energetic Shift 040916” emerged from this experience.
