about

The international artist Joy Wulke, head of Projects for a New Millennium (www.projects2k.org), approached me many years ago and asked me if I would be interested in collaborating with her and several others writing music for some large outdoor spectacles to take place in a giant granite quarry in Stony Creek, CT. The music would be based on the intersection of science and art, a combination of live sound, pre-recorded, etc. I would be Music Director, Sound Engineer, and composer. It took me approximately 0.0004 seconds to "think about it" and I've never turned back.

Most of the music was played on huge sound systems (put together by Fred Santore) out in the Quarry, and on Avery point (in New London). The larger quarry had to have most of the water pumped out. The sound had to travel quite some distance to the audience who sat at the bottom watching the show filled with spectacular lighting, video, and pyrotechnic effects created by Jamie Burnett. Lasers, as well, dancers/actors, folks who were moving accross the canyon on zip lines with electro-luminescent wire, a man pointing in real time on a 30 foot piece of paper, a sphere moving slowly accross above the audience: Sounds trippy? Well, it was.

Eye-Dantz Vol 1. includes music used in some of the Quarry shows in Stony Creek, at Avery Point, and in the Bridgeport Discovery Museum, in CT. All the music was composed, recorded, and performed by Istvan Peter B'Racz. On the 6th track, the actors in the show were droning in the recording.

We had so much fun putting all of these together. Thanks to ALL who took a part in it, and who came and enjoyed.

Thanks to Joy Wulke, without her direction and energy, none of this would have ever happened. Sadly Joy passed away a few years ago, but we are planning on keeping the fire going in her honor.

Thanks to Directors Jeff Burnett (aka Jesai Jaymes), Tom Burnett, laserwrangers, Margaret Carl (stage managing), Producers Robin Comey, and Susan Mulcahey, Lydia Emperador (EL wire on costumes), all the climbers, actors, dancers, light wranglers, spotlight handlers, sound crew, Fred Santore and Ivan for the amazing sound systems, Geoff Hotz for loaning the giant projectors, assistants to Jamie, and many hundreds of VOLUNTEERS!!!

Thanks to the University of Connecticut at Avery Point, The Bridgeport Discovery Museum, the Stony Creek Quarry, the Town of Branford, and ALL the wonderful people/corporations/foundations that donated money to make these incredibly expensive performances a reality.

On to the next.
