During my undergrad at the University of Rhode Island, I read the book The Mummy or Ramses the Damned by Anne Rice. I had the overly optimistic idea to compose an opera based on the book and began working on some musical themes. For many reasons, the opera never happened (if you know Anne Rice and think she might be interested, give her my info), but I had this short piece to show for it. Originally, it was written for rock band and strings, but I recently rearranged it for rock band, choir, and full orchestra.
On Sunday, Nerds That Geek posted Episode 24 of the Movie Mumble podcast: ‘Fanboys’. Listen as Joel, Scott, and I “dive into a true cult classic, one that explores the power of fandom and one that features the ultimate quest for a group of nerds who are looking to provide their dying friend with the best gift ever.” As a prelude, listen to the various themes in the media player.
