Classical 101.1 WRR Focus on the Arts: A new commission by Dallas’ Sixth Floor Museum

As part of its four-day series surrounding the anniversary of the JFK assassination in Dallas, the Sixth Floor Museum has commissioned award-winning composer Jesus Martinez to provide the soundtrack to an all-new compilation of motorcade footage, performed by a percussion ensemble from Arlington’s Sam Houston High School. The film score is meant to link sound effects and synchronized sound to specific scenes that will captivate the audience and create the sensation of personally witnessing the events of November 22nd, 1963. Hear the composer chat with WRR’s Amy Bishop about his creative process in writing the piece.
