Performed an updated version of my UPSTREAM score at the Museum of the Moving Image last night. Joanna wrote fun lyrics for the title song, and I had about 10 other themes for characters that wove in and out, played by violinist Susan Heerema, clarinetist/cellist David Tasgal, and drummer Ken Lauber. Joanna also sang a few other songs as part of the score, including "Give My Regards to Broadway" and "Oh, You Beautiful Doll," and we all chimed in on "Auld Lang Syne" when the title card for the song came up. John Ford's direction is lively, the characters are varied and delightful, and the audience laughed a lot.
