La Foule

Music by Ángel Cabral

Lyrics written by Michel Rivgauche

Sung by David Green, Melinda Faylor - Piano

A chance meeting in the middle of a festive crowd - it's love at first sight.

The singer thanks the crowd for making this possible.

But, just as quickly as it brought them together,

the crowd separates them and they never see each other again.

Milord

Music by Marguerite Monnot

Lyrics by Georges Moustaki

Sung by David Green, Melinda Faylor - Piano

Recounts the feelings of a lower-class "girl of the port" who develops a crush

on an elegantly attired apparent upper-class British traveller she has seen walking

the streets several times (with a beautiful young woman), but hasn’t noticed her.

Let Me Take You on a Ride

Video & Original Soundtrack by Jacqui Anscombe

I filmed this group of NYC subway performers last year.

I removed their music from the video and replaced it with my own song.

It fit perfectly... I discovered that I have a gift for this kind of thing :)

Akouó

Video & Original Soundtrack by Lucas Bass

Akouó (ἀκούω—ak-oo'-o) is Greek meaning to hear, listen, comprehend by hearing.

Figuratively 'to hear God's voice which prompts Him to birth faith within'.

To properly answer wether a tree that falls in a forest makes a sound if no one is present

to witness it one first has to understand that the forest IS sound.

I have found that if you keep your mouth shut long enough and just quietly listen

the world will tell you everything. A chorus of wind cleanses

your soul and prepares you to face your inexorable truth.

Brothers in Arms

Film Segment & Original Soundtrack by Chris Moscato

Poem by Emma DeGrand

This film is borrowed from the NYU library of student films

as a vehicle for my one of my passions, microtonal music.

The music is composed with William Sethares' Dynamic Tonality,

a theory for consonantly tonal harmonic microtonal music.
