I’m pleased that my friends and collaborators at Evolve Puppets‘ beautiful live-action, wordless puppet film LIGHT AS PAPER has been named as an Official Selection by the 2021 Vienna International Film Awards in the category of Best Experimental!

Guest speaker for Stanford University’s Distinguished Careers Institute

On 06, Aug 2020 | In Front Page, News | By Joel Friedman

I was very happy to be the guest speaker for Stanford University’s Distinguished Careers Institute (DCI) today. We had a great time doing a deep dive into the creation of the song Help! JL: “Stop it! Stop, stop… string gone” GH: “I’ll have to double-track singing it. I’ll have to do this bit singing, which is going to be even harder still.” Thank you DCI! ☺️

Premiere of Inferno Postponed Until Fall 2020/Covid-19

On 09, Mar 2020 | In Front Page, News | By Joel Friedman

Dear Friends: In an abundance of caution, and following suit with a number of other Bay Area organizations, the March 29, 2020 premiere of my Inferno, Double Concerto for Viola, Cello, and Chamber Orchestra with Jennifer Kloetzel, Jonathan Moerschel, Maestra Barbara Day Turner, and San José Chamber Orchestra has been postponed. However, Silver Lining: We are working on the reschedule! So: watch this space! Meanwhile, let’s keep those on the West Coast, and the Bay Area in particular, in our thoughts.
