The Ensemble Project
In October 2013, I produced a series of videos and photos for Indre Viskontas—a neuroscientist and opera singer—as part of a research project sponsored by the Germanacos Foundation and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. The research explores the relationship between music and empathy and involves several musicians, so I wanted these videos to make viewers see them as real, relatable, interesting people—not just incredible, unreachable musicians up on stage.
Here’s an example of one of those videos: an interview with pianist Keisuke Nakagoshi. I also made the accompanying website.
