Special Projects

2014: Pictures at an Exhibition

Pictures at an Exhibition was written by Modest Mussorgsky (Night on Bald Mountain) for solo piano in 1874. Pictures has been orchestrated and interpreted by other composers (most notably Ravel) and even a couple of bands (Emerson Lake and Palmer, Mekong Delta). So it's time we put our signature on one of classical music's most beloved, recognized, and walked-around-a-museum-to pieces!

In order to super-size this project, we have teamed up with The Invincible Czars to create a double band (a.k.a., "The Dorkestra"). That makes for an 11-piece art rock band complete with horns, strings, guitars, drums, and percussion. Sarah divided the arranging duties with Josh Robins of the Czars. After years of demos and rehearsals, we have finally hit the studio and plan to finish the album in 2014. 


Live Original Film Score:
The Oyster Princess

The Oyster Princess (1919) is a tale of vanity, excess, extravagant wealth, and mistaken identity. Our newest silent film score project was selected by the SXSW Film Festival. That premier was a packed-house success, and we've since reprised the film at the historic Texas Theatre in Dallas, Discovery Green in Houston, and at the 2012 NMASS Festival in Austin.

This trailer features some of the new music we've written. You can also catch a glimpse of the debut performance that was captured by an audience member. You can hear another Oyster Princess song on our Soundcloud page.

Live Original Score for Buster Keaton's The Cameraman

This clip features live audio from the November 2010 debut of our live original soundtrack for Buster Keaton's The Cameraman (1928). We have also performed this score at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival and at Discovery Green in Houston as part of Houston Public Radio's Silent Film Concert Series. The day of the concert, we appeared on The Front Row to play selections from our original score and discuss how the project came together. Listen to the broadcast

Roadtrip Nation

Three of our songs are in the new season of the PBS series Roadtrip Nation. The show features young people who drive around in a green RV and learn about possible directions in life by interviewing interesting people. The idea is to "encourage people to engage in self-construction and actively participate in defining their futures by hitting the road and hearing stories from leaders who have resisted the noise of conformity and stayed true to themselves." We'll do our part to battle that "noise of conformity." Music from both our full-length albums appears in Seasons 7 and 8.
