From Up Here (2016)

by Nicholas Escobar

In December 2015, Nicholas was commissioned by director Esther Cohen to write an original score for the play From Up Here by Liz Flahive for the Front Row Theater production of the play. Nicholas immediately wrote a three minute suite of sorts using a main theme he created. From there, Escobar and Cohen met a couple times to hammer down ideas for the score, talking mostly about characters and their relationships. 

Nicholas recorded the 4 minute score with eight student musicians from the University of Pennsylvania.
