Thou speak’st aright; I am that merry wanderer of the night.

I jest to Oberon and make him smile
When I a fat and bean-fed horse beguile
–Puck

This week we mark the birth&death-day of Willy Shakespeare …. and for those who know us, you are aware that the Brothers Grimm have been hard at work scoring two of the Bard‘s plays. 

இ Comedy!

Brothers Grimm & db pedersen are putting the finishing touches on a live instrument score to accompany A Midsummer Night’s Dream this May – directed by Greg Harris with Strollers Theatre, Ltd at the Bartell Theatre (Madison).

 The production opens next Friday, May 3rd.

 for when, where, how much? check out the Isthmus Guide

௸ Tradgedy!

Directly on the heels of MSND’s closing night, the Bros. Grimm will head down to Indianapolis and perform their foley/sound-score for NoExit Performance‘s production of Macbeth directed by Michael Burke.

Macbeth opens Thursday, June 13th

see photos from our Bradbury’s Coffee foley recording session!

 

 ண here’s our 3rd and final preview for tomorrow’s COLIAS 1 release party!

Everything in this track that isn’t DB’s wonderful vocal performance is source sound from the Bradbury’s ladder, gathered during our Macbeth rec session. Including the ‘ah-ahk//gagaku’ style wailing-melody in the background!

MACBETH 

BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

DIRECTED BY MICHAEL BURKE

JUNE 2013

SCORE BROTHERS GRIMM

NoExit Performance 

[click gallery to view full screen stills by Glynnis Ritchie]

The Brothers Grimm are composing their first electronic sound score for NoExit Performance’s production of MACBETH this June, 2013 (Indianapolis). Director Michael Burke is devising to explore uncomfortable territories in Shakespeare’s classic dark tragedy through a site specific setting. The show will not be a traditional rendition, but instead 13 patients trapped in a single room of a mental ward – all reciting their own version of Macbeth at the same time.

The concept for the score involves setting less musical elements. No melody. No harmony. No rhythm. Instead, we’re creating sound banks of recorded foley & will treat/effect them to our purposes. With these sound banks we will improvise the score on an Akai APC 40 with the ability to instantaneously surprise, inspire, pace, & effect the actors performances.

Special thanks to Bradbury’s Coffee for letting us record the sounds in their space! Also, thank you Jon Brumbaugh for recording audio & Glynnis Ritchie for taking excellent video!
