4.16.21 - Lessons of Darkness Doc, Lessons of Tone and Mood
Play • 16 min

Hey friends,

This week I've been haunted by Werner Herzog's Lessons of Darkness. It is a masterful documentary on the aftermath of the oil fields in Kuwait in flames after the conflict. I had to talk about it, so I'm going to do it here, and hope to learn a few things from this meditative and heartbreaking work, as I need to pack a lot of tone and hopefully mood into my latest work: a new interactive audio play.

Check out the film for free here:

Much love,
