In a naked attempt to raise my profile and increase my credibility with composers of Serious Music, I recently agreed to be interviewed by Prof. Heebie McJeebie, the well-respected TANDY Professor of Electronic Music at the Hotel Cadillac in Rochester, NY. The good professor has now posted the transcript of our conversation to his blog.
From the press release:
Laboratory Theater's Magic Monkey Dance Company is an operatic primate fantasia, chronicling the life of an orangutan named Kusasi. This animal epic tells of his beginnings as an orphan, his rise in dominance over a jungle kingdom that – due to the logging industry – will soon disappear, his struggle with panic attacks and bouts of depression, and the psychotherapist who would try to save him. The piece is performed in English and Orangutan with simultaneous English translation.
Performances at The Brick in Williamsburg. Tonight at 7 PM, Saturday (Aug 19) at 3 PM, and Sunday (Aug 20) at 7 PM.
