Composer & Arranger

Brendan composed and performed the music for the theatrical production of INDISCREET DISCRETION by Silvia Graziano.

Brendan's Notes

The score for this play was highly influenced by its location. The venue was a temporary theater in the Fort Port neighborhood of Boston. It had a cement floor and wooden rafters; the acoustics were very resonant. You could hear low rumbles and big clangs from the street traffic outside. I used these sounds in the score itself, finding ways to create strange and atmospheric vibrations from my electric guitar.

The other influence was Silvia's writing. She told a compelling story that was complex and disturbing - that's exciting territory to score!
