Birth of a Colony

I wasn’t planning on posting again so soon, but I thought you might like to know that “Birth of A Colony” is premiering this coming Monday on PBS at 9 pm (check your local listings). The 90-minute film takes an amazingly frank look at the interaction between the European colonists and the Native Americans in North Carolina during the earliest days of colonization.

I have to say – this was an incredibly fun film to compose the music for, because (among other things) it gave me a chance to use lots of Indian flutes and drums that we’ve had in the studio for a while. You can hear some samples from this score by going Here.
