OMG - You can't make this stuff up! Currently in Stockholm for the European premiere of THE NOTEBOOKS OF LEONARDO DA VINCI, and my waiter at the cute Swedish restaurant down the street from my hotel is sporting multiple da Vinci tattoos! And he's studying projection mapping, which is a really cool new technology (mapping projections onto objects like buildings and stages to create a spatial augmented reality). We talked all things da Vinci and it was just a delightful dinner conversation. And I know that da Vinci would have been completely intrigued with the kind of work we BOTH are doing. Anyway, thought you all should know. I'm smiling ear to ear. Thank you, Sebastian. I'm sorry there was a limit to how much I could tip you, and I hope you come to the concert on Sunday. ...

Spent a long time sketching new notes this morning for a commission from the Wartburg Symphony and Wartburg College Choirs. I've had this poem by Naomi Shihab Nye earmarked for years, and I'm thrilled that I finally get to set it to music.I'm collaborating again with the filmmaker Isaac Gale for this new multimedia symphony with projections and surround sound-scape. It's also inspired by the western meadowlark, which has a beautiful bird song.What might surprise you is that this one page of notes will probably become at least 3-4 minutes of music. I'm about halfway done with the sketching process. And there's nothing like the satisfaction of starting the engraving process.... ... See MoreSee Less
