‘Sparks’ in Concert

Arranged 21 songs for American rock band duo ‘Sparks’. They are brothers Ron & Russell Mael, known for their quirky approach to songwriting, Sparks’ music is often accompanied by intelligent, sophisticated, and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell’s wide-eyed hyperactive frontman antics and Ron’s sedentary scowling. They are also noted for Russell Mael’s falsetto voice and Ron Mael’s keyboard style.

The music was performed at the London Barbican in Winter 2014 and later in Los Angeles at the Ace Theatre in 2015, with plans for additional tours, concerts and recordings later.
