"Stages", Ian Cooke

Ian Cooke and 303 Choir meet, rehearse, and perform together in Stages, a 23-minute doc about musical collaboration. In this short doc, produced by Ray Trout and Ian O'Dougherty, 303 Choir (local singers aged 9 to 16) sing harmony with local cellist and songwriter Ian Cooke on his post-apocalyptic song "Rover" from his most recent album 'Fortitude.'

Trout, a local media producer, and O'Dougherty, a local musician (Ian Cooke, Uphollow, Tauntaun, Eolian) and video editor, have been producing this doc since early 2012 with no budget, and will be offering downloads to try to fund more Stages docs.

The download includes an HD video file of the final performance, plus a 5-track EP featuring several versions of the song, documenting the evolution from demo to finale. The 'pay-what-you-want' download is available at www.iancookemusic.com.

Listen to Corey's interview with Ian O about the project on Mile High Noon.
