No Beast So Fierce

If you loved 2013's The Mother and/or love movement based adaptations of Shakespeare with Richard III as a woman, you should check out No Beast So Fierce, the latest Max Truax adaptation for Oracle Theatre. It's running now at Storefront Theater in downtown Chicago in association with the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. The music that I composed for the show was my largest and most involved to date, with writing beginning November 2014 to completion in September 2015. I'm in the process of mixing the movements to stereo and releasing for your listening leisure. I created a quick video of the recording process that involved Ben Henning on tenor saxophone and Chris Walker Henning on flute. They brought amazing depth and life to the movements and you can expect to hear them on plenty more future projects. Catch the show if you can; you will not be disappointed. Have a spooky scary Halloween!
