Keeper of My Heart’s Odd Secrets w/the Sank Six

Just finished up composing music for Keeper of My Heart’s Odd Secrets, a wedding party/performance about love and reality, with traditional ceremonies, untraditional dancing, irreverent games, and vodka.

I composed music for the show and DJ’d the party as the official wedding DJ. I found a bunch of old 45s that were the perfect soundtrack for the exhibit and party games. They feel like that old TV show The Wonder Years; suffocating, yet romantic.

The ceremony music was meant to be tribal, celebratory, and territorial.  It is both a welcome and a watch the f___ out.  The performers are experiencing their own emotions during the processional – a kaleidoscope of angst, joy, anxiety, and serenity.

At one point, the audience is spontaneously included in a cathartic dance party. The dance starts as a day-dream reverie of a stay-at-home Dad, yearning to be free of child-rearing and domestic duties.

Finally, the performers settle into a waltz that oscillates endlessly between a romantic slow dance and a battle of physical tension/opposition.
