CRAZY DINOSAURS is an animated television show that was cablecast on Boston Neighborhood Network TV. I wrote all of the music and created the animation. The series won an honorable mention in The Hometown USA Film and Video Contest; and received press in South End News (cover story with photo); Bay Windows; and The Advocate (full page article and full page photograph). The excerpts shown to the right feature clay animation with a variety of performers: Carmen Rodriguez- Peralta and Eileen Feldman, piano; Virginia Crumb and Michael Rafferty, harp; Michael Romanul, 'cello; and John Corely, conducting the M. I. T. Concert Band.
I also perform the theme song (# 6). The doll house was made by Jean Riseman. Please click on Emily Brontesaurus (or the button to the right) to watch "Crazy Dinosaurs"
EURYDICE was also shown as part of Crazy Dinosaurs, and also used clay animation.
Here, I sang the music to "Orpheus in The
Underworld" with piano. The piece is also
available for string orchestra and for medium
sized orchestra. The poem is by Boethius, and
is sung in Latin. The doll house, again, was made
by Jean Riseman. Please click on Terry-Anne Tosaurus-Rex or Orpheus (or the button to

DYNOSAUR "The world's first continuous soap opera: found on the walls of caves and brought to
us today by computer." This five part soap opera, was also shown as part of Crazy Dinosaurs, and uses (very) primitive computer animation. The
music for Dynosaur is composed of five finger exercises: each of the ten fingers plays ONLY one note throughout an entire movement. I performed the music. Please click on one of the bugs in the bottles (or the button to the right) to unleash "Dynosaur"
