Manhattan Morning: A Sound Postcard from Home to Myself

My iPhone is filled with voice memos taken over the years. They are not what one could consider typical voice memos with shopping lists or meeting reminders, they are audio captures of moments in my day that I found, somehow, fascinating. I didn’t do anything with them just had them there; a time capsule about nothing for nobody. Life occurring.

Radio, always a love of mine and a passion I never pursued for reasons I have yet to understand, is on the rise in my life and today, on vacation, with the rain pouring down sending all of us inside I had the inspiration to download a trial version of Hindenburg and apply my hand at editing together a short audio piece.

So here it is, two-minutes about waking up at home on an early fall morning in 2015. It’s about cultivating an awareness of the space I am in. It’s a postcard from home to myself.

My Literal Entry into the World of Opera – Documented

Not only does Susan Froemke document the recent iteration of Der Ring des Nibelungen at The Met but she also – unwittingly – documented my and my teenaged son’s literal entry into the world of opera. That is us at the end of the trailer. I recommend you see the full program…not for us but for the magnitude of what was accomplished regardless of your opinion of Lepage’s vision or the Ring Cycle in general. It’s a non-fiction movie on the current day process of making opera. Amazing. I am inspired to be part of the process.
