Notes for a Voyage

Here is a link to Notes for a Voyage. I recorded the voice over for this while in Saratoga this summer for the Martha Graham Dance Company. Peter Sparling, the director, approached me on a recommendation from the MGCo. members. It was a bit of a quick and dirty recording, the concert was to be in 2 days. I have to say, this was such an honor, as the dancers featured, Blakely, Tadej, Ben and Loyd, are some of the most spectacular dancers in this country if not the world today. 

I hope you enjoy the piece. The text is from Martha’s own writing, -a letter to her physcologist in some places-as she was working out the visions she had of a new piece dealing with her relationships with 3 distinct men in her life. 

Hopefully there will be another showing of it in New York at the WestBeth in the autumn. I’ll keep you posted. 

all best
