Music for new web series


Lately I've been composing for a web series currently in production. The show is a comedy called "Theater People", and uses the Minneapolis performing arts scene as a backdrop.

Today we shot some footage for a sequence involving a musical theater adaptation of "The Shawshank Redemption". I set director Matt Anderson's lyrics to music; the other night we recorded Brian Kelly singing lead. Cast members lip synced the song and staged it as a dance routine onstage at Bloomington Civic Theatre's black box space today. Hilarious. Looking forward to seeing it all come together.

Audiobook: The Golem


...Sometimes a faint, inexplicable quiver goes through their walls, noises scurry across the roof and drop into the gutter, and with our dulled senses we accept them heedlessly, without looking for what causes them.

--Gustav Meyrink, "The Golem"
