FAREWELL Preview Video No. 2

Check out Zebra Visual's Video No. 2 of FAREWELL: A Fantastical Contemplation on America's Relationship with China. Donald Byrd and Spectrum Dance Theatre are featured in this preview from an open rehearsal at The Moore Theatre last week.

Somehow my name was left off the music credits in the video, but you can hear my audio ideas. To align myself with Donald's ideas of the documentary aspect of the production, I've included excerpts from news broadcasts. I've also mixed in some whacked out er-hu and Chinese percussion to make the Beethoven and Chinese music sound less precious.

FAREWELL premieres Thursday through Saturday, February 18-20, 2010, at The Moore Theatre in partnership with the Seattle Theatre Group.
