I’m a little late getting this update out, but I have some
pretty good reasons…
I recently got approved to play at an annual festival called
Wicked Faire in Somerset, NJ! This was a complete surprise
to me as many festivals require you to apply a year in
advance. I’d all but given up hope on getting to play any
of them anytime soon.
But, luck struck and I got accepted. This set into motion
a fury of activity to get ready for the event, i.e. planning
my practice schedule, making sure I have supplies, arranging
for the time to drive, and…
Making this short video to introduce myself to any attendees
who might watch it:
It’s part of my plan to make more video updates, so it’s
kind of like “step one.”
Hope you enjoy it!

2011.08.17 Anne Rice’s Vampire Lestat Fan Club uses instrumental composition by Sapphire Rebellion front man, Tim Curry, for promotional video
Anne Rice’s Vampire Lestat Fan Club used some
chamber music that I composed in the background for a video promoting the 2011 Theatre of the Vampires Ball. This annual event, will be held in New Orleans on the evening of Oct 28th, 2011. This is very exciting for me personally, because I’ve finally gotten a piece “placed” in a video, and it’s being put in front of people who will probably like Sapphire Rebellion!
In addition, local New Orleans Literature Examiner and renaissance fair queen, Dionne Charlet, has published a piece detailing Ms. Rice’s posting of the video, and a summary of the event and the promotional video: Read Dionne’s article. I am also mentioned in the article, so I “made the news” so to speak!
2011.07.24 Here is an article written by Tim Curry outlining “Tips For Combatting Depression Naturally”
Many people do not know that I have clinical depression. I was on Buproprion for many years, and it worked well, but I decided that there must be a better way than taking a pill everyday to feel normal. I knew that serotonin played a key part in mood, so I decided to try and find ways to combat my depression naturally.
