There’s a pretty extensive interview with me in the April issue of The Wire–the UK”s cutting edge music magazine with world wide readership. It covers a lot about Raymond Scott and the film, and I get a chance to sound off on a number of film and Raymond Scott related topics. And there are some pictures too! I believe they’re publishing a review of the film next month. Stay tuned!
And if you’re in England, especially in the North (or in Scotland for that matter), a reminder that this weekend on March 28 there’s that event at the Sage Gateshead Jazz Festival in Gateshead, co-produced with the Northern Lights Film Festival. I’ll be there along with Stu Brown of The Raymond Scott Project. I’ll be showing excerpts of the film, Stu’s group will play, and there will be a presentation of original animation created in a workshop the day before by a group of youngsters and presented with Stu’s group playing live. And also there will be a panel discussion with Stu, Alyn Shipton of the Times and me. Whew….it will be a full program, and I’m really excited about it. For more details click on this link . Hope to see you there!
