Press for Joshua Frankel’s “Plan of the City”

My good friend Joshua Frankel made an incredible film that’s set to/around my piece for NOW Ensemble, Change. It is called Plan of the City and you can watch it here.

It’s been extremely interesting and gratifying to watch the video get picked as a Staff Pick on Vimeo, go viral, and reach over 90,000 hits on that platform (where people actually watch the movies!). There have been some great writeups on outlets around the country and the world, including from Anne Midgette at the Washington Post, who called the live version “one of the best matches of visuals to music I’ve seen” in a review of our May concert.

A couple of the more interesting writeups came on the Huffington Post and the Architizer blog, which examined five “city symphonies”, placing Plan of the City in conversation with Koyaanisqatsi and Sufjan Stevens’s BQE, two works that I really admire.
