Here is the soundtrack I composed for Pat Oleszko's play, "Norah's Art," that was performed at the Maryland Art Place in Baltimore Maryland summer of 1990. The multimedia performance loosely based on the Noah's Ark story. Warned of a coming storm of media censorship against the arts. The artists gathered to build the giant Norah as their Ark. Saxophone was played by Calvin Toulos.
