Music for New Works
Amanda served as Music Director/Composer for The Greenfield Collective's 2015 Philadelphia Fringe Festival production of Fifty Days at Iliam. Working with a base collection of songs by Sarah Van Sciver as inspiration, Amanda composed "haunting" acapella vocals and instrumentals as companion pieces that underscored the story.
Developed over an eight month workshop period, Fifty Days at Iliam explores the relationship between abstract expressionist painter Cy Twombly and his iconic Fifty Days at Iliam paintings via poetry, physical theatre, dance, and live music that was described as "simple, incantatory, sung and played with a richly resonant purity".
