Othello

Perseverance Theatre—2015

Here are samples of the original compositions from my design for “Othello,” Aug–Oct 2015: the Othello main theme, played on synth by Yngvil vatn Guttu.



Desdemona’s “Willow” song, here played by Yngvil vatn Guttu on a harmonic flute.


Annapurna

Perseverance Theatre—2015

Original music written for Annapurna. I am fortunate to know two excellent Dobro players with very different styles—Peter Dunlap-Shohl, who plays the sweet double-stop version of the melody on a very bluesy-sounding old metal-body resonator, and Randy Pasley, who plays the melody lyrically on his more bluegrass-y wood body.


A Lesson from Aloes

Thalia’s Umbrella—2014

Original music written for “A Lesson from Aloes;” Betsy Sims plays marimba, and I play cello.
