CROSS ARTS COLLABORATIONS

‘Heart of the Wood’, produced by James Earp, is an original composition set to a beautiful animation by Sundeep Toor. The scenery was physically produced from paper on which the animation was projected, and later burned to create the effective ending. The track is featured on the album Lodestar.

This version of Mayte-Martin’s ‘Vidalita’ was co-arranged with guitarist David Shepherd for flamenco dancer Ana Garcia. The violin parts were developed to imitate Mayte Martin’s stunning vocals. as well as compliment the melodies of the guitar falsetas. It was performed in the Adrian Boult Hall, Birmingham.

‘Radiance’ is an original composition produced specifically for the latest production by Sally Jacque’s renowned aerial dance company Blue Lapis Light. The sell-out performances took place over a week in June 2016 at the Long Center, an outdoor arts arena overlooking downtown Austin, Texas.
