Marco's new concert piece Unfolding Light for String Quintet or String Orchestra is now available as part of the LAFCI 2020 New Music Project, an initiative curated by Los Angeles Film Conducting Intensive to create a collection of new works giving voice to the extraordinary events of 2020 while offering new repertoire sensible to the challenge contemporary music ensembles will face in programming the upcoming concert season. The piece, that can be performed by any size of string ensemble, with an eye to smaller, chamber formations to deal with Social Distancing regulation, is a reflection on the meaning these difficult times carry for each one of us. The piece is available at https://www.lafci.org/2020-new-music-project in the Ensembles section for ensembles and performers to download and program in their concerts, and you can listen to a demo of Unfolding Light on the project's SoundCloud page at this link.
The Star of Eros, directed by Jon Sahagian, is now live on Omeleto channel, a prestigious showcase of award-winning and critically acclaimed short films. You can find it at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxgarMviGgg
The Star of Eros has been selected to stream on The ON! Channel. The film will premiere on Mother's Day (topic-appropriate, for more information you'll have to watch the film!!). The ON! Channel offers a 7-day trial at the link below. I had the pleasure of providing this dreamlike fairy tale by Jon Sahagian with some fun-to-write orchestral music, thanks to his passion for thematic film scoring.
