Society for American Music Sight and Sound Subvention

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve won the 2016 Society for American Music Sight and Sound Subvention. The subvention will fund my project, “Scoring the Silver Screen from ‘Fairy Flirtations’ to The Sea Beast: Recordings of Repertoire from the Silent Film Sound and Music Archive,” which will involve a collaboration between the Silent Film Sound and Music Archive, professional silent film accompanist Ethan Uslan, and myself in recording 25 pieces from the Archive and making them available for free download through a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial license. For the full list of pieces, please visit http://www.sfsma.org/ark/22915/sfsma-recording-project-wins-society-for-american-music-sight-and-sound-subvention.
