SIRIUS XM Satellite Radio
I'm so pleased to announce that "The Enchantress: A love triangle with death" will be aired on Sirius XM Satellite Radio. I don't have the exact date at this time, but as soon as I do, I'll post it.
The Enchantress -
A Rebecca Bowen Mystery: An Elemental Horror
This is a full-cast audio mystery with full sound scape.
The script won a Spirit of Moondance Award at the 2010 Moondance Film Festival in Boulder, Colorado.
The Moondance Festival is one of the few film festivals that accepts both scripts for and completed audio projects.
By way of handouts at the film festival artist Wednesday Wolf created a small novelette illustrating one of the scenes from the story. I have installed a slide show of the complete novelette below. I hope you enjoy it. Below the slide show is information about female detectives in 1890's London, a story synopsis and a list of the cast is on the inside cover of the novelette.
It may surprise many people to find out that in 1890's London there were many female private detectives. One of the larger private detective firms in the city had a full women's department.
Scotland Yard did not employee female police personnel until the 1920's, however, when they needed a woman's special touch on a case, they were quick to call on the agencies that did have female detectives, and often.
One woman in charge of a department was highly cultured, very refined and spoke several languages. The female detectives were often paid a fixed salary, whether working or not, thereby always being on retainer. It wasn't unusual to have an actress or even a Russian princess as an operative.
Thus Rebecca Bowen is losely based on one elusive woman who is rumored to have been the highest paid private detective (male or female) in London, if not all of England, at the fin de siecle. As to who she really is? Well, I continue to research.
In "An Elemental Horror" Rebecca Bowen, her lover Jack Saunders and her secretary, Polly Penniford, travel to Montbury Manor to investigate the Elemental Demon that is haunting the halls of the estate.
Tea Room Waltz
Thomas Chaillan's music
I have the great good fortune to be introduced to Thomas' music through my sound designer, Aesop. Thomas is located in Switzerland, which makes Rebecca Bowen an international project! The above pieces are works in progress that will form the basis of themes, backgrounds, transitions and much more.
I'm thrilled that Thomas (with his father in their studio in Switzerland) has agreed to work on this project and I look forward to working with him more.
