I am thrilled that my score for The Turner Exhibit won Best Score by the Monkey Bread Tree Film Awards. The review states: “A really chilling and tense making score is provided here by Gordon. She pulls all the strings when it comes to creating an eerie world.“
To create this chilling and eerie world, I explored the use of Shepard tones, which is an auditory illusion involving a seemingly-endless riser, similar to the seemingly-endless staircases in M.C. Escher’s art.
The Turner Exhibit was directed by Mathew Bainbridge and has an all-star cast featuring David Costabile (Breaking Bad), JD Cullum, Angelica Page, Michelle Pawk, & Elizabeth Cassedy.
I am absolutely thrilled to announce that I have won the first annual Dr. Jim MacMillan composition prize!
My choral composition Sub Tuum Praesidium will be premiered on April 26 & 28, 2019 by the wonderful Voci choir of Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association, conducted by Mark Steighner! This choir is located in Hood River, OR and I am so excited to visit this beautiful city in April to hear the premiere.
The holiday season is upon us and thus so is holiday music. I have several upcoming performances of my holiday music, including a premiere of my brand new piece Light in the Darkness, a brand new arrangement of Joy to the World, and my arrangement of What Child Is This. This is my favorite time of the year, so I am thrilled to have so many wonderful choirs performing these pieces and spreading the cheer!
