about

Back in the late 1980's, Paul Krupinski founded Ancient Eyes Productions in order to market an original planetarium program entitled "From Ancient Eyes to the Age of Discovery" - a production he directed at the Whitworth Ferguson Planetarium in 1988. After the subsequent success of that show, Paul set out on marketing a second show: Mister Frost and the Skies of Winter. Ancient Eyes Productions invested in a lot of equipment in order to become a competitive and viable production company - this included the purchase of a state-of-the-art synthesizer/workstation and multi-track digital recording devices in 1995. Paul brought me on to compose an original music score for the show and all those pieces are included here on this album and available for the first time in nearly 20 years. This soundtrack has always had a special place in my heart - it was my first professional scoring job and countless hours were spent experimenting and recording. Although I composed and played the music, Paul was present at nearly every session acting as both producer and recording technician. Over the course of several months (and untold cups of coffee) the score was completed. The show was marketed and sold 18 copies throughout North America along with one International sale. It was a fun program about two children (a scholarly teenage girl, named Alison, and her video game-obsessed little brother, Michael) who meet the lively spirit of Winter, Mister Frost, while gathering firewood outside during a power outage. After using his magic to blow away the winter clouds, the children are given a guided tour of the heavens. By the end, Michael realizes that there are many things to see and experience beyond his myopic view of the video game world and Allison reaffirms how much fun it is to look up and discover.
