    Gene – Di.J
    ‘Blood Scenes’
    For trumpet, Di.J. and narrator with live film. I take the bloodiest and goriest moments from various horror movies and string them together to make a strange scary video. I score this video for trumpet, and Di.J. (digital jockey – computer only). Trumpeter Franz Hackl  and I as Di.J. will be joined by Sean Satin, who will read some blood related poetry over the big finale to this piece.

    Seth – piano
    The Happening by M. Night Shyamalan
    Consistently ranked as M. Night Shyamalan’s worst film, the Happening features plants taking revenge on humanity through an airborne toxin that turns people into suicidal zombies, or something. This condensed version features only the absolutely best worst parts.

    Rearview by Chase Casanova
    A woman sees a strange, menacing figure behind her car in an empty parking lot…

    Leatherface in Love by Alexander Bickford
    Leatherface meets his female counterpart in this darkly comedic reintroduction to one of the horror genre’s most iconic characters.
