The music includes several realtime performances on Kaoss pad, gongs, djembe, and drum kit all played by SPIKE the percussionist, and vocals by Lainie Diamond, who channeled a performance that draws equally on her classical technique and a more theatrical, blues-inflected kind of delivery one hears from the mouths of singers like PJ Harvey. The final score is an organic and very detailed hybrid of industrial and ambient music, with extended periods of tension, slowly developed crescendos, and sudden explosions of sound. I'm very proud of this one.
"Widow" will be screened in January at Lincoln Center's 2014 "Dance On Camera" film festival. More information about that screening will post as the date approaches.

One note: I think it's kind of amazing how social media is allowing artists across the globe to collaborate in ways that were just not possible in the age before the Internet.
Malcolm Low / Formal Structure will be artist in residence at Queensborough College starting in January 2014. "It's Like Basketball But Different/ DEVOTION" will be performed on May 15th and 16th of 2014
I'm very pleased and blessed to be working with these two truly talented and visionary artists and to be able to introduce them to my network of musicians.
