Called “the quintessential modern composer” by the London Independent, Austin-based composer-bandleader-improviser Graham Reynolds creates, performs, and records music for film, theater, dance, rock clubs, and concert halls, with collaborators ranging from Richard Linklater and Jack Black to DJ Spooky and Jeffrey Zeigler. He recently scored Linklater’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette for Annapurna Pictures; an upcoming projected directed by and starring Katie Holmes, Happy Jail for Netflix; the Rude Mechs’ Stop Hitting Yourself for Lincoln Center Theater; Ballet Austin’s Grimm Tales; and a multi-year commission from Ballroom Marfa, The Marfa Triptych. Amidst his many other projects, Graham also serves as the artistic director of the new music-focused non-profit Golden Hornet. In 2020, Graham signed with London-based record label Fire Records and released his original score for Alfred Hitchcock’s silent classic The Lodger. He recently collaborated with renowned choreographer Deborah Hay on Culberg Ballet's Horse, which premiered in September 2021 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Visionary composer Reynolds will visit Indiana in March 2022 for a free performance of Pancho Villa from a Safe Distance on March 31 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington. His visit will also include several additional campus and community activities, including this March 30 screening program at IU Cinema. Tickets to the March 31 performance can be secured through the BCT box office.
Pancho Villa from a Safe Distance is a bilingual cross-border opera about the life and death of the Mexican Revolution icon Pancho Villa. Commissioned by Ballroom Marfa, the project is the third installment of The Marfa Triptych, a genre-hopping trilogy of musical and visual performances by Reynolds, and featuring Adrian Quesada, Paul Sanchez, and Liz Cass.
