Special Screening "Inside the Perfect Circle: The Odyssey of Joel Thome"

A music documentary about world-traveled composer and conductor Joel Thome, 'Inside The Perfect Circle' provides a close personal look at Thome's career and philosophy. He collaborated extensively with Frank Zappa, arranging the eccentric rock icons elaborate music for symphony orchestra and rock band. He was awarded a Grammy for his work with Zappa and guitarist Steve Vai, and was also nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. He composed the music to Pablo Picasso's only play, and completed many other projects furthering modern music. After suffering a debilitating stroke in 1998, Joel lost the use of his left arm and was forced to undergo years of recovery. Using music as a resource for healing, he was able to resume composing and returned to the stage to perform his graphically notated mandala scores. The performance was featured at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City in September 2009.
