Behind the Scenes Movie for the "Invention & Alchemy" project We won a Grammy Nomination for "Best Classical Crossover Album" for my 2007 original symphonic project "Invention & Alchemy." The disc includes this wonderful 20-minute "Behind the Scenes" documentary by filmmaker Rick DiGregorio
DHC's Solo in Seattle (on tour with Steve Vai) This is a fan video of my solo during the Steve Vai "Story of Light" tour 2012. This was taped in Seattle, one of the nearly 100 shows I played with the incomparable Vai on his 2012 world tour.
Muchas Manos (with percussionist Robert Schulz) This is a version of my piece "Muchas Manos" -- for harp-four-hands ... and mallets. This performance was part of the chamber ensemble performances to prepare for my Grammy-Nominated symphony project, "Invention & Alchemy" - it was performed at the Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA (Don't expect hi-fidelity video from this one)
Belinda (What a Lovely Tree) This is a song I wrote about my favorite tree in the Boston area. I wrote an arrangement of the song for the Arlington High School chorus and we were scheduled to perform it in concert when we learned that the tree was about to be cut down. We met at the tree and sang the song -- this is a video of that performance.
Deepfelt thanks for this video to Arlington High School chorus teacher Cheryl Christo and videographer Mike Chvany.
The tree was decimated early Thanksgiving morning, soon after we recorded this.
Dr. Jekyll & Mrs. Hyde ROCK (with Tim Archibald) A crusty harpist and her uptight butler turn into their own alter-egos with a little help from a magic potion in this short experimental Tim Archibald and I made in my old basement studio in Davis Square, Somervile (MA). I edited it with the first version of Adobe Premiere, and the sound was so bad it was unusable, so Tim, harpist Kyle Oppenheimer and I improvised to the silent movie during a show we did at the Somerville Theater (MA), , taped that and added it as the sound-track.
