Hawking


Catch-up entry #1 of 50,000: Recently I was invited to participate in a workshop of a new play called Hawking by Lonnie Carter at the Playwrights Center in Minneapolis. The piece imagines Stephen Hawking in conversation with various historical and mythological personages. Director Hayley Finn wanted to integrate some live sound into the production, and I wound up scoring the entire piece with a fusion of Foley effects and percussive accompaniment. The approach was a hybrid of underscoring and punctuation. Big fun! Further development of the show may follow... perhaps a play, perhaps a multimedia piece of some sort? Stay tuned...
