New but not new from STM, Trey Anastasio recently posted this video we produced on his website. It's a live take of an epic song called Time Turns Elastic that we shot in the spring of 2008 as part of a project with Trey and Orchestra Nashville.
Trey and Nashville's Don Hart worked together to scale this solo composition up into a full orchestral suite, which premiered at the Ryman Auditorium last fall. Trey is performing it with symphonies around the country, and his band Phish is about to release an album of the piece scaled to the instrumentation of their legendary jam band. It's a remarkable work. Don't expect to get it on first listen. I was glad to work on this edit with Anne because it got the music really in my head and under my skin. The extended solo guitar passages are extraordinary. I'd like to express my gratitude to Trey and his folks for letting Director of Photography Harry Butler and I visit the famous Barn in Vermont where Phish has made so much music and which is now a wonderful artist retreat under the auspices of his foundation the Seven Below Arts Initiative.
