JoAnne and Lindarose listened to the music of composers from New Mexico. Working together, as usual, with hundreds of miles between them, they selected Karen Cunningham, a music composer from Albuquerque.
Karen has a variety of experience in the musical world but especially in collaborating with visual artists for interactive events. She teaches piano and music composition privately, encouraging students to actively participate in other arts along with their piano education.
Karen was enthusiastic and responsive to our vision of the kind of music that would work most effectively with our first film. Her piano piece “View From My Window” composed in 2008 worked perfectly for our first filmed interview “Peggy.” Our filmmaker David Lindblom used three different sections from the piano composition to support the segment.
We also discovered several other composers whose music we look forward to using in later interviews.
