Some pics I took at our recording session for Dorian Gray, at the end of last month.
Aka “Too Many Hats!” I wouldn’t consider these the absolute best pictures ever, but it’s hard to be the composer, conductor, and music producer, and also try to take a few pics on the side. This is the recording session for a new ballet film based on Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray. As a ballet, I had to compose the music and have it recorded by a certain date, without having seen any footage. Now that it’s recorded, I’m hard at work mixing, mastering, and polishing, while my director Felicity works on the choreography.
