The Conqueror Worm
Okay, let's talk "The Conqueror Worm." In this poem, Poe creates an atmosphere of celebration of all that is horrid and cruel. Normally, you would expect to hear dire sounds of dread. Instead, Sonny Meadows and his crew have created a wonderful dance of the dead! You can just see all the skeletons, devils, wtiches, worms and such coming out to party as they devour the human soul. Combine this with Roger Luce's deep, dulcet tones and you have one hellava dead party!

Duh Poe Boys
This was an extrememly interesting and creatively challenging project. Developing musical forms and content which capture the dark elements of Poe's work and the haunting dynamics of Roger's read pushed us into some new levels of artistic exploration. Thanks for the opportunity.
