Lesley Lambert asked me to edit Keke Palmer’s song Skin Deep for her senior class to choreograph and videotape. Here is the result:
Congratulations to Jacob Lill for winning Junior Mister Superstar at Star Systems’ National dance competition 2011 at Myrtle Beach. Jacob was smooth on stage for his brief interview, citing his mother as the coolest person he’s met in real life, and finding nothing bad he could say about his home state of Connecticut. An hour later he was on stage performing That Old Black Magic, choreographed by Lesley Lambert. The music was by Jeremy Davenport, and edited by yours truly. It was somewhat of tricky song to edit, since the tempo of a jazz song will drift slightly through different sections of the song. I am very proud of the results of my audio editing, making the song perfectly seamless.
But I am even more proud of Jacob and his choreographer for all of the hard work they have put into becoming a National Champion!
And now Squirrel Trench Audio can claim to have edited the music for a National Dance Champion! For more on the keys to a winning dance routine, check out this entry.
The world premier of my song remix titled Pixie Hollow will happen tomorrow afternoon at Lowell Auditorium at the Headliners Regional Competition. Lesley Lambert, Assistant Director at nationally recognized dance studio, is leading her group of mini’s in a character dance. The Pixie Hollow medley features several parts, including spoken voice, light & airy synthesizers, and a couple of rocking Selena Gomez tracks. The effect should be magical! I’m extremely excited to see this debut tomorrow.
Update: You can now hear Pixie Hollow and get a few glimpses backstage at the costumes here: Pixie Hollow unveiled
