Vistas and Landscapes

Posted by Brian G. McKee on 25 March, 2013 at 2:15

It's been awhile since I posted anything, but I'm getting really excited putting together the musical and visual elements of my upcoming MM bassoon recital, Vistas and Landscapes. In additional to playing the bassoon, I love taking pictures of places that go and things I do. I've even been putting my Photoshop skills to work lately at my job at MCI, creating posters for Chicago Symphony Hall and ads for the Chicago Tribune for some festivals our company produced there a few weeks ago. 

It's been fun going through thousands of photos in my library from over the years, many of which I had forgotten about. For the recital, I'll be displaying a collection of photos I've taken from over the years on a big projector screen behind me while I play. Some of the pictures are musically relevant, while others I chose because of the imagery I associate with the music, perhaps meant to give the audience a context beyond listening. I'm excited to see how it turns out, and I look forward to seeing you there.
