Collapse at REDCAT, March 27-29!

I am happy to announce that my new piece, Collapse, will premiere at REDCAT on March 27-29! Based on a traditional requiem form, Collapse is a post-ecological song cycle about humanity's dysfunctional stewardship of the earth's resources.

Collapse will be performed by Timur and the Dime Museum, for whom I've been writing, arranging, recording, and producing the music (and playing accordion/keyboard) for the last few years. This piece is an exciting culmination of our evolution as an ensemble thus far.

Between now and the premiere, I'll be posting the libretto for Collapse, one song at a time. I'll also include some relevant links and info about the subject of each song.

Go to the REDCAT website for tickets!

Composed by Daniel Corral and produced by Beth Morrison ProjectsCollapse is a vividly sardonic show with interactive visuals and satiric songs about the environmental catastrophes caused by humans. 
Live-mixed projections by the award-winning video artist Jesse Gilbert (World Technology Network fellow), and costumes of the LA fashion designer Victor Wilde of the Bohemian Society (Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2014), will further create a raucous portrait of the human-made impact on the planet. 
Collapse runs for three nights (Mar 27-29) at 8:30pm at REDCAT. Following the world-premiere at REDCAT, Collapse will travel to Miami Light Project and Operadagen Festival in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
