New Interview: “Behind the Music of Agents of the Realm”


(Artwork and video by: Mildred Louis)



In 2018, Mary was honored to compose the music for the Kickstarter campaign of her absolute FAVORITE graphic novel series, Agents of the Realm, by the amazing artist, illustrator, and author Mildred Louis (you can check out the music in the official Kickstarter video above!). And so, when Mildred asked Mary recently if she would like to be interviewed as part of the new Q&A series on Mildred’s Astrea’s Nexus website, Mary was beyond excited! <3 You can read the interview in full below, which includes how Mary first connected with music, setting a schedule for creativity, favorite snacks (honey-flavored graham crackers, of course!), and more!:

Synesthesia-Inspired Video for Christina Goh’s “Trouveur”





Above is the music video for the gorgeous song “Trouveur” by the fantastic composer, musician, and poet Christina Goh; performed by Christina Goh (vocals) and Adam Baïz (piano). Mary is honored that the beautiful music video for this piece, directed by the wonderful Yannick Martin, was partially inspired by the synesthesia-based visions Mary experiences when listening to the song — a field of pale purple flowers and green grass greeting an orange sunset, representing the key of B-minor.
