El Canto Del Colibri at Frameline, Goblinarium app/exhibit at Google, and a trip!
It is overcast, brisk, and sleepy today. The quote attributed to Mark Twain is dead true: “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” I'm listening to some tunes I just made for the documentary El Canto Del Colibri. It premieres June 20th at the Roxie Theater as a part of Frameline 39. It will also be showing in Berkeley at Rialto Cinemas Elmwood on June 24th (I'll be there!). The tunes were meant to be very minimal to provide movement to the film while not being too distracting. This is a really touching film, and am honored to be a part of it. Here's a teaser of the 45 minutes of music I wrote:
Next up, I got some great news regarding the Goblinarium project. The app is live and FREE to download on your iPhone and iPad. Download it, tell your friends, and download it some more. Someday I will actually have an iPhone 5 or iPad to use the app myself, so in the meantime, please download it for me! If you are in the Bay Area, you can see Goblinarium's public exhibit at Google San Francisco, 345 Spear Street, 4th floor lobby 9-5 M-F, through July 1, 2015. More news about a crowd funding campaign for the next app to come!
In a few weeks, I'm heading to Dublin, New Hampshire for the weeklong Creative Musicians Retreat through The Walden School. I'll be with several other composers, improvisers, performers, electronic musicians, choristers, and music teachers. There will be master classes and a ton of time to just work with no distractions. I'm pinching myself because I can't believe this is real. I plan to work on my piece for RAWdance, a forthcoming project with Bay Area composer George Hurd and continue to work on my album. I'm excited to share the work I will produce from this trip!
That's all for now. More to come as always. #CantStopWontStop
