Interview with Julia Meek of WBOI

By Bart J Helms

It’s poor consolation for anyone who didn’t acquire a ticket in time, but WBOI’s Julia Meek (Folk Tales, Meet the Music) interviewed Lyndsy and me about the process of creating a film score. Listen here at NIPR’s website.

We’ve said it everywhere by now, but thank you again to everyone who came, to the Cinema Center, and to our musicians. We checked so many items off our bucket list that night and added so many more.

Nosferatu

By Bart J Helms

We’ve been quiet this year. One reason is that we’ve been composing a score for the film Nosferatu. On Friday October 24, we will perform this score live at Fort Wayne’s Cinema Center. It’s one of Lyndsy’s favorite films, so we couldn’t say no, despite the 90 minutes of film to score. We’ve been hard at work composing and arranging songs and stings to highlight the horror and romance of the film. Once again, we’ll be expanding our line-up to include a horn section. The extra tonal colors are helping us realize more of our early jazz orchestra influences.

In the coming months, we’ll post videos and photos as we begin to take our ideas to the band. We hope you’ll all follow our progress and, if you live nearby, come to Fort Wayne to see the performance in October.

Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets.
