Thunderbird’s SHOW DOWN! Opens Soon

I co-wrote this show with some fellow Thunderbirds AND I’m doing sound design and music composition. It’s funny and silly and a little grownup. More info below!

Show Down!

K.R.A.P. TV, the last television station to broadcast live, has just become the battleground for the future of entertainment, technology, and hyperbole.

When traditional programming devotees are pitted against hipsters of new media, the results are unexpected and lol.

This original comedy brings K.R.A.P. to the stage where audiences will witness the age-old struggle of pride of work versus the all-mighty dollar.

Will our heroine Beth, be able to keep the station afloat, or will the evil Commodore entice everyone to waste their days with online personality quizzes?

Turning traditional work-place melodrama on its ear, this show asks which is better: enduring true love or grabbing tacos with your paramour du jour?

Now in its sixteenth year of bringing original, locally written stage comedies to San Francisco and the Bay Area, the Thunderbird Theatre Company proudly presents: Show Down!

Rat Girl is Open!

It’s often said that the best film scores are unnoticed; neither intrusive or showy, an organic compliment to the film. I gauge my sound design to achieve the same feat. To that end, here are some reviews in which my sound work for Rat Girl is not mentioned:

Sam Hurwitt of KQED Arts said, “…”

Jean Schiffman of The Examiner said, “…”

Emily Chandler of Theatre Play by Play said, “…”

Charles Kruger of TheatreStorm said, “…”

Rat Girl is open now and runs through May 24th, at The Exit theater.

Tickets are available here!

Here are some samples of my work from the show.

 

Rat Girl: Spring 2014

I’ve signed on to do sound design, and possibly some arranging and new composition for the world premiere of “Rat Girl” based on Kristin Hersh’s autobiography of the same name. Hersh was the lead singer/songwriter for 90’s alt rock band “Throwing Muses.” If you haven’t revisited their music in a while, now is the time!

The production will be part of Divafest 2014 in San Francisco.

Inaugural Concert of Interchange Music

The inaugural concert of Interchange Music was a great success. Thank you to everyone who participated in the exhibition of this new orchestration technique. Plans for producing a large (and smaller!) concert are in the works, as are the full theater productions which were the impetus for the creation of this elegant solution.
