Virtual Recording

May 8, 2020

5/8/20 – Our dear friend and longtime collaborator Robin Burdulis has been recording the percussion tracks for our Marry Harry film over the past few weeks in her Brooklyn apartment. The plan was to record the band at a New York sound studio in early April – but when COVID arrived and changed the way we do things – we sent the orchestrations to the musicians to record virtually – each alone in their apartment. The tracks will be assembled over the next few weeks – in time for our online film premiere on May 22nd!

Bunny Angels

April 13, 2020


148 artspace lockdown:

spending our days
in the studio
door locked
curtain drawn
dan deep in his music
composing . notating . orchestrating
a sound score for our new musical … film
michael at his work table
his hands deep in clay
… a trio
of naked bunny creatures
they call themselves
art angels
flying above and below
around and through
the walls that close us in
the fear and separation
these days seem to hold
