Angels in America
Directed by Gavin Cameron-Webb at UCI’s Robert Cohen Theater, my role in Tony Kushner’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play was to develop integrated original compositions. Using a multitude of cinematic genres, compositions were fully meshed with the sound design, the onstage action, and the dialogue through close collaboration.
As You Like It
Directed by Jane Page at UCI’s Robert Cohen Theater, this intimate production was set in Louisiana. My role included setting appropriate and storybook influenced, original compositions using both playback and live performance of the original music. Much of the score was subsequently performed live, by the actors with rehearsal support by the composer.
Directed and written by Mihai Maniutiu for UCI’s Claire Trevor Theater, Mihai created a thought-provoking drama based on the play Hecuba by Euripides. After Troy examines the conflict between civilization and the barbarians who are intent on annihilating it. My role involved creation of original compositions fully integrated into the sound design, performed live on stage. The compositions ranged in style from hip-hop to a Philip Glass style underscore.
