It was the first performance of the Royal Giant Social Collective, and I didn’t know quite what to expect.
It was an experiment of sorts. A new approach to directing. I wanted to see what would happen if I put two musicians together and asked them to collaborate on a song. With out rehearsing. With out written music and having met each other just moments before the performance.
I only told them the intention and the spirit of the project. And asked that they be truthful to that intention. The result of the project is the above performance by Hassan Farrow and William Aronin.
The result, as you will see, is a stirring and brilliant performance of Wholy Holy. Special thanks to the production team at BRIC studios and our Host Chikori Dae.
