Birth of a Harpsichord



As seen at the Nasher, and the North Carolina Museum of Art!

This is my latest piece in its entirety- an exploration of the intersection between art, music and history. It pairs interview audio with handmade puppet and needle felted animation.

  3. Andrea,

    You make me proud! I can't believe you jumped right into a project of this scale right after graduation. It's fantastic.

  5. Terrific! This has the ring of truth to it -- the people, their desire and project, the instrument and music, and the dog, all resonate with authenticity.

    Thank you!

  8. Andrea, I've had so many great comments from friends on my Facebook page. Can I have your felted autograph? Just kidding. Kind of. No really, I'll just have the pleasure of watching your career take off in a direction that nobody could have even dreamed. What fun!

  9. Could you tell us the titles of the music that is played in this video -- Can we get the scores or recordings?

  11. Yes! The two contemporary pieces in the video are separate movements from a Sonata by Edwin Mclean. Elaine's CD 'Into the Millennium' (http://www.elainefunaro.com/cd_millennium.html) features that sonata and more. Unfortunately it is out of print, so if you are moved to buy it, send me an email and I will put you in touch with her.

    If it opened for me, I'm sure I'd say, "It's lovely!"

  16. I just got around to watching this, Andrea. It's great! I especially love the felt and yarn stuff, and the kitchen set!! I'm lending my copy of Some Like It Raw to a friend of mine tonight. :)
