Throughout April and May 2020, I presented a social media activity in which artists of various mediums were invited to create their own part to add to my arrangement of an excerpt from "Je te veux," a song by French composer Erik Satie. The music is light and cheerful, and was chosen for that reason as well as a personal affection for Satie's music. The excerpt was kept short to encourage participation. The artists made videos of themselves in split screen performing with me. The response was wonderful and videos were created by dancers, poets and musicians in the US and abroad. Someone stated, "Wow, you have a lot of interesting and talented friends!" For this, I am so very grateful. Thank you again to everyone who participated.
To view the virtual collaborations, you can visit the public Facebook post where all of the videos are posted in the comments section. You can also scroll through my Instagram page.
If you'd like to participate, a piano/vocal score as well as my video and audio tracks can be accessed on Dropbox. Use iMovie, Acapella or other software to perform the A section along with me, post and tag. Best wishes!
