Day 449/1000 Had the opportunity this past month to compose a film score for dancer/choreographer Treyden Chiaravalloti’s (@treyden_c) film “The Man Who Loved the World” as part of Juilliard’s Beyond the Machine InterArts Workshop. Also super grateful to @philipsheegog for having my back in the cello duets 🙏
Tickets still available for the performance on March 28th 7:30 in Wilson Theatre at @juilliardschool (Link in Bio)
Here is a description of the film itself:
November 11, 2018—the hundredth anniversary of the armistice that brought “The War to End All Wars” to a stumbling close—passed in a flurry of ritual observance that marked the moment but missed the meaning. The carnage of that war was so great, and the victory so dearly bought, that forgetting was, perhaps, the only way to bear remembrance; for the death of the last surviving veteran of World War I orphaned us with questions to which there were no easy answers. What’s the point of history? Why should we look back to figure our way forward? Is there something crucial to be learned from experience of those long dead? Not surprisingly, the artists of the time grappled with the same questions and left behind a legacy of searing eloquence. In particular, the words of Siegfried Sassoon, a soldier turned poet, singe our hearts and inspire us to dive, as he did, into the most harrowing of experiences, and extract the raw materials of courage, compassion, and creativity. A multimedia presentation blending music, spoken words, dance, and videography, The Man Who Loved the World, presented at the Wilson Theatre in March 2019, will breathe new life into the past through the medium of the present.
The Who do you love music video is good. I like how happy and enthusiastic the boys look. It’s something different. I just want the blue to stay true to themselves in their music. ❤️ #whodoyoulovevideo#ilove5sos#musicvideo
In fact, listening to that one song -- "Weightless" -- resulted in a striking 65 percent reduction in participants' overall anxiety, and a 35 percent reduction in their usual physiological resting rates in a study that was reported.
