Composer/Songwriter/Producer Paul Brill has received three Emmy Award nominations for his film scores and recently won the first-ever Best Music Award from the International Documentary Association. He collaborated with Rock legends U2 on the HBO film, Burma Soldier, composing a new string arrangement for an acoustic version of their classic song, “Walk On.” His recent work includes the hit documentaries, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work (IFC), the Emmy Award-winning Page One: Inside the NY Times (Magnolia), the Sundance Festival winning films, Gideon’s Army, Trapped, and Love Free or Die, and the Emmy, DuPont and Peabody Award-winning, 6-hour PBS documentary, The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross, with noted historian Henry Louis Gates and additional musical contributions from Wynton Marsalis. He recently made his Off-Broadway debut, composing the score for Gabriel Jason Dean’s Terminus, which featured stage legend Deirdre O’Connell and premiered to great acclaim at The New York Theatre Workshop, and his music was performed and featured by Phoenix Chamber Music Society in March of 2018.
Paul, joined by a chamber ensemble and a great number of special appearances by friends and collaborators, will bring his recent film compositions and varied song catalog to life at Joe’s, performed live to film projections and live animation sketching by celebrated artist Michael Arthur. Featured performers will include Elizabeth Ziman, Matt Ray, Jamie Leonhart, and many others.
