Recording Juniper

On November 15, 2021 I found myself sitting in The Stoller Hall in Manchester, England along with 60 members of the Northern Film Orchestra. Compositions I had written nearly two decades prior were printed out and placed on their music stands. Over the next hour and a half we would record Escape & Clear Sailing.

It was surreal, exhilarating, and sentimental — all at once.

"Fly on the Wall" of the Recording Session

This video offers a "fly on the wall" perspective of the 1.5 hour recording session I had with the Northern Film Orchestra on November 15, 2021. In this session we witness how the conductor works with 60+ musicians to record two pieces of music that they've never seen or heard before.
