Santa Cruz in Song and Image

Santa Cruz in Song and Image
Santa Cruz CD and Postcard PackThe initial model for this project is Santa Cruz in Song and Image, which brings together musician Brian Gore’s original compositions in a “musical map” of the Santa Cruz Mountains region with images created by illustrator Bill Russell. Various technologies were used to create, deliver and monetize the songs and the artwork, including a CD and postcard package, animated videos and an enhanced iBook.


Your Town in Song and ImageYour Town in Song and Image

Your Town in Song and Image is coming to your town.  Acoustic guitarist Brian Gore and renowned illustrator Bill Russell will bring your community to life in their multimedia performance at your venue. Known as a “poet of the guitar,” Brian’s original playing and compositions have story lines that take the listener on spellbinding rides through a range and depth of moods. Versatile illustrator Bill Russell turns this music into a feast for the eyes, as well as the ears, bringing his one of a kind “reportage” and other myriad styles into an evocative visual narrative of region and place. Together, their original multi-media program is combined with the story of your town. Every engagement includes a real-time from the stage to the screen illustration, created to the music, and a video montage uniquley integrating the story of your town. They research your town, in advance of the event, to achieve this; using input from people knowledgable about your community to inform their presentation. Available for performances, residencies, and commissioned work.
