Ken Burns’ “The brooklyn Bridge”

     Living in the Amherst Mass area, Ken and I knew each other from a Gurdjieff Study group.

     Ken was working on his first film, hired a composer and it wasn’t working out.

     Somehow Ken had the faith that we could work together on the score, both new to the process. So with a stopwatch and a Steenbeck over a number of weeks created the score.

      Months later a mutual friend stopped me on the street in Northampton ...”call Ken Burns”

       The Brooklyn Bridge had been nominated for an Academy Award.
