about

Music from "the Visit" at Payomet - June, '08 -Had a swell time writing , recording, and playing music for a play called "The Visit" at the Payomet Center For the Arts in Truro this past summer... I got to do sound effects, too (mostly trains -simulated with pebbles in a tin can -and bells, etc.), which made me feel a kinship with the only other musical person in my family, my maternal grandmother, Marion Chandler, who used to play piano for the silent movies.

Though I mostly did the music and sound effects live, originally the plan was to use recorded versions on Sunday, when I was playing with the Casuals at the Beachcomber; but everyone so much preferred having it done live that most Sundays during the run I ended up hot-footing it over to Truro as soon as the Casuals got off stage, jumping in whenever I got there (the play started at 8 and the Casuals stopped at 8, so each week I kept trying to beat my record -luckily, somehow managed to avoid a speeding ticket.) It was quite the culture clash, I can tell you!

That's the always invaluable Berke McKelvey on soprano and baritone sax -we had a blast recording this stuff...
