Over the summer I had the opportunity to work with the folks at Higher Mind Media Productions to compose a soundtrack to a speech by climate change guru, Bill McKibben.
The Higher Mind Media crew was so moved by Bill’s speech at the 2011 Power Shift conference in DC, that they decided to follow his call to action for Moving People Day. They choreographed an original dance that worked with my score and the edited version of Bill’s speech.
Big thanks to engineer Colin McCaffrey, and tabla and cajon player Gabe Halberg, as well as my fellow Movement of the People (Fela Kuti Project) crew: Zach Tonnissen, Max Bronstein-Paritz and Dillon Zahner for helping out on the track.
Here’s a video of the dance using my score and Bill’s speech.
