We deeply appreciate the patience of the "CloudStreet: Soaring the American West" fans - thank you for believing in the project. It has been a long journey, and from the beginning we recognized the musical score as one of the most important parts of the program. Truly, it seemed unrealistic to hope that a composer could capture the joy, the grandeur, and the adventure of cross-country soaring. So we thought - until we heard Matt Pavolaitis and Colleen Grace's powerfully beautiful score. (Loud cheers went up in the editing room when we heard it). It’s exquisite.
The piece also features narration by Dave Pettitt - who you may recognize from his work with National Geographic and The Discovery Channel. His full bodied voice brings a level of depth and intensity that elevates the project to an entirely different and wonderful level.
We are targeting a Spring air-date on PBS stations, followed by availability on-line and via DVD/BR media. Once we have firm details we’ll be sure to share them.
So put on your best equipment, turn down the lights, turn up the sound, strap in and let's go fly!
CloudStreet: Soaring the American West is produced in association with PBS affiliate KNME in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Air date and time: New Mexico PBS May 27 at 9:00 pm.
