Muriel Anderson’s new program “Wonderlust” includes visuals – moving and still images artfully compiled by brilliant photo-artist Bryan Allen. Sometimes whimsical, sometimes thought-provoking, always engaging, it is a musical journey around the world, bringing together diverse cultures and settings, shining a gentle light on our common humanity, as this video attests.
When Muriel first encountered Bryan Allen’s work, she knew she had found her artistic soulmate–she was amazed to find that his photo-art was saying the same thing as her music. They went on to create the 11-award winning Nightlight Daylight CD, and in the process discovered that their artistic affinity extended to the heart. They combined their artistry in a live context, and this show is the result. Bryan’s stunning visuals provide an insightful backdrop to Muriel’s music, accentuating the audience experience as never before, providing a virtual tour around the world in music and imagery.
