O (2001)

For this score to Tim Blake Nelson’s modern day adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello, he and I discussed the idea of using Early Music Instruments in combination with an orchestral setting. As a hybrid of modern sounds and ancient sounds, the score would mirror the re-telling of this timeless story in a in a modern context.

I featured a vielle and viola da gamba consort [the precursor to the violin and the cello respectively], as well as hurdy-gurdy, psaltery, harp and bass mandolin.
