Sprocket Ensemble Farewell Performance, March 2 in San Francisco

Nik Phelps and the Sprocket Ensemble perform live music to projected animation. When I made my first animated short in 1998 on super-8, Nik composed an original score to play live. At that performance I went from being a humble cartoonist to being an animator. Nik continued to write brilliant scores for films I made in San Francisco, including I Heart My Cat (perhaps my favorite ever), Cancer (which I used as a score for a later film, Lexi), and the now-famous Fetch!. Now this venerable San Francisco institution is bidding adieu to the City by the Bay and moving to Belgium. I just learned Nik and the Sprockets are giving a farewell performance at the Balboa Theater on Thursday March 2 at 7 and 9 pm. Wish I could be there!
