In November 2014, jazz legend Ben Sidran wished to release a track from his upcoming album BLUE CAMUS, titled "Wake Me When It's Over", in reaction to the lead-up and outcome of the mid-term 2014 elections.  He flees to Paris as his frustrations are put into words and music.

 

BLUE CAMUS was released in the US in Spring 2015.

Science journalist, songwriter and singer Jascha Hoffman and I collaborated on videos to accompany nine tracks from his forthcoming album, The Afterneath.  All lyrics were inspired by the subjects of New York Times obituaries. 

 

Our goal was to work exclusively with archival and found material on the internet to create loose and metaphoric interpretations of the past eras during which the people he sings about lived.  The Atom Bomb was inspired by the life of scientist-turned-Maoist Joan Hinton.  The Little Airplane was inspired by the life of Maynard Hill, the first creator of a model airplane to cross the Atlantic.

 

In October 2014, "The Atom Bomb" screened as part of the 7th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival in NYC.  Jascha continues to perform live.
