Opens 10/31! Really stoked about this one. I think it’s the best music composition for the stage that I’ve ever done. No dialogue, all music. Get your tickets here!

It’s going to be fantastic.

my brother, the inimitable James W. Moore, did a poetry remix project. I provided an original piece for the last in the series.

4 songs for Oleanna

I did some transition / preshow music for Steel Cut Theatre‘s production of Oleanna. Just for fun, I broke it down into four movements and put together into a little free album on Google Play. I think that I’m going to do this for shows where there’s enough stuff to be interesting as a stand-alone.

Danny and the Deep Blue Sea
by John Patrick Shanley
at Action/Adventure Theatre, Portland Oregon.
March 2nd – March 24th, 2012

A divey bar in the Bronx. Danny at one table. Roberta at another. “Me, I’m twenty-nine and I cant stay the way I am for too fucking long” says Danny. And Roberta feels the same. Driven to the edge of endurance by alienation and self-loathing, these lonely strangers are ready to try anything to get out of their own heads. Anything. Even love. Described by the LA Times as “a foul-mouthed romantic fairy-tale with bloody knuckles,” Shanley’s masterpiece gives us a ringside view of the thoroughly damaged duo as they grapple and grope their way through one transformative night.

The Willamette Week has this to say about Danny and the Deep Blue Sea:

“The two actors fill up every inch of the sparse set and small theater with their volcanic emotions, creating a reality both painfully uncomfortable and heartbreaking.”

A Willamette Week Pick.

This one is quite late, but here ya go: A collage of sounds from The Adding Machine, from 2011 with Theatre Vertigo.

Rapunzel opened, and I’m rather pleased! The kids are doing great, and it was an amazing experience. More music from that to come, but for now, a snippet:
