Angel of Many Signs

The New York Choral Society presented Angel of Many Signs, a superb digital, instrumental, choral, and visual art synthesis. This production was billed as “a multi-media and multi-disciplinary concert bridging centuries of feminine imagination and power.”

The Orchard

While Chekov’s play holds a firm place in the literature, through the magic of technology the story can now be presented in a cutting-edge complex dreamscape of seemingly incongruent elements achievable only with the contemporary arts of live-streamed multi-media drama.

Love by MasterVoices

This fabulous third chapter of “A Theatrical Song Cycle in a Four-Part Digital Series” entitled LOVE, explores human relationships through a mystical lens at love’s ironies, impediments, and expectations. Through this musical passageway, we observe fulfillment, loss, and violence, while ultimately drawing relief through the brilliantly understated postscript of how one might lose another.

Flight by Mastervoices

This amalgamation of 19th century protestant hymnody and Greek myths begins with its musical exploration of the legend of Icarus, son of Daedalus (creator of the Labryinth) who flew too close to the sun with wings of wax and feathers. Icarus’s struggles to reconcile his father’s dominance only to plunge to his oceanic demise is characterized through this venue with a rich musical mixture of Rhythm and Blues, gospel, and classical venues supplemented by musical theater. A true multi-media experience is reimagined for the virtual stage.

Within Earshot: Anthems for the In-Between

The concept album of Within Earshot: Anthems for the In-Between is fresh, exciting, joyful, hopeful, and exceedingly relevant during these times of isolation and worry. After all, love, caring, needing each other, lifting each other’s spirits, and celebrating the beautiful side of being human are and shall always remain paramount.
