Juilliard School, NYC
I was brought onto this production by the director, Pam MacKinnon. We had worked on a few productions before, and this was another great collaboration.
We realized that this play was both a character study, and a very deep exploration on loss. But it is also a real examination of what it is to fall in love. In all of these things, there are no final answers, only a sense of self, and how one relates to the world.
We wanted to evoke all of this subliminally through the music, while also invoking the setting of a downtown loft at night. For inspiration, I looked to the world of jazz, writing and performing music for a (sometimes augmented) quartet of piano, drums, bass, and muted trumpet.
