Below is a 70 minute edit of a 2 hour performance produced by Orfeo Group and performed at the Boston Center for the Arts in 2010. It features performers from Orfeo, singers from L’Academie, and other guests and friends.

This edit is meant to share my research with parties interested in bringing this exciting research to their institution and school. The lecture has been performed over 10 times in various forms – by myself, with students, professionals, two performers or over 20. The material is flexible and is always tailor-made for each iteration depending on audience, venue, and context.

The Music of the Spheres is my area of special research.  It’s an engrossing field encompassing music, acoustics, physics, harmonics, astronomy, astrology, and other completely engrossing subjects.  Soon I will have extensive information on this site about my lecture event Muse on Fire: Shakespeare & The Music of the Spheres, other lectures I give on music and Shakespeare, and the resources and research I have gathered to write my first book.

There will also be video footage of a recent Muse on Fire event that will be up on this site within the first week of October.

Check back and in the meanwhile, enjoy the Mundane Monochord, pictured above.  And the scales of the planets, below:
