    OT:Shameless Plug Vol 2

    To my NS pals:

    For the past year I’ve been scoring a PBS series called NOVAscienceNOW. (We just picked up a major award and got renewed for a second season.) No big deal in the grand filmscoring scheme of things for sure. But on tomorrow night’s episode I will actually be a featured performer...a kind of singing correspondant. (It’s the beginning of a new career as a novelty act.) And I have to say, the producers really made something quite magical with it. So please check it out, if you want to see me making a fool of myself and having fun. It airs on PBS at 8 pm, Tuesday Jan 10. If you’re not in the US, you can watch it online starting Jan 11 at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3302/02.html. There’s even a vodcast of it if you hunt around.

    It’s a multi-story magazine format. The piece in question is called the Twin Prime Conjecture. Sorry...dunno where it occurs in the hour. But you can also catch a glimpse of me in the tease that opens the show. For most of you, that should be more than enough....

    And BTW, although it looks like I’m playing a grand piano, it’s really Michiel’s wonderful Bosendorfer you’re hearing.

    I’ve just finished a new record (very proud of it), which you can hear on my site, where I’ve also posted a slew of new filmscore samples. Please drop by.

    Thanks to all for making NS a really good and helpful hang....my best to you.

    Paul...thanks for rescuing this thread from sinking like a stone!..(dangerous business, this shameless self promotion..)...and linwood, much appreciated too!

    Mike...I wouldn't have even done a shameless plug if you hadn't inspired me! It is a great show; very creative. It's been the usual mixed bag from the scoring point of view but a great team of people and I'm glad to be doing it. I can barely remember what I wrote for this episode besides the song but I know it's pretty light on music. There's some nice Benny Goodman-type stuff in the opening story.

    Thanks again.

    I don't think that would happen.

    Very nice music all the way round here. Good singing too - very distinctive vocal. A bit Dylanish. I bet no one ever said that before. Very tuneful and musical. I like.

    Way to go, Rob! very cool and I can't wait to see/hear your contribution. It's funny- I just got off the phone telling my sis what a great guy/talent you were.I'll get her to watch as well. Congrats! K
