In a five hour durational performance at the Knockdown Center in Queens, Dumas interprets measurements gathered by Sunde to create a reverential soundscape for the ancient tree.

belladonna luna sonata

October 2015 to November 2015

On an island estate, an aging maestro (alone but for his faithful butler) shares with a humble gardener his story of a life lived for music – oh, and the time he tried to destroy the world. A melanchomedy about music, lost love, memory, and literally world-shattering art.

Written by Robert Stewart
Directed by Greg Peters
Original Music by Joshua Dumas
