Now Online: Full Performance of Sewing the Earthworm

Canadian Art Song Project continues to amaze in their support of Sewing the Earthworm, the song cycle I wrote with composer Brian Harman. Carla Huhtanen and Jennifer Nichols are incredible together in this performance, which took place in November 2015 at The Extension Room in Toronto. Everyone really pushed the idea of what Art Song could be here...this is the piece of theatre I suspected it could be.

I'm blown away by the camera work and editing of James Howard who really captured the energy and frenzy of the live performance, as well as John Gray, who recorded and mixed the audio on this (as well as the on the CMC recording last fall).

You can watch the whole performance below (and follow the text here).

Let me know what you think.
