Jeremiah Lockwood debuts "The Nightmares of Children," NYC, 18 May, 2012

The Nightmares of Children

I [Jeremiah Lockwood] originally imagined The Nightmares of Childern as being a kind of walk-in closet...a place you could enter to be completely submerged in the fairy tale horror and surreptitious pleasure of morbid childhood fantasy. Eventually I dropped the project because it was too disturbing...

I am pleased to be presenting a small part of the project in the form of a song cycle, featuring brand new arrangements of the pieces for voice, cello and piano. The first rehearsal with Aneke Schaul Yoder, cello, and Derin Öge, piano, was really stunning. I hope to be able to share this newly excavated and resucitated project with you all tonight!
