“Mercury” to be used in documentary

Thursday, December 7th, 2006

I received an e-mail yesterday asking for permission to use my song “Mercury,” which I wrote during FAWM last year, in a 15-minute promotional version of a full-length documentary called “Taking Shape.” The film will be about the creation of an art installation by Virginia Scotchie called Floating Spheres of Continuity.

Floating Spheres of Continuity consists of 77 ceramic spheres of various colors ranging between 17 and 30 inches, placed in a pool at the Taipei County Yingge Ceramics Museum in Taiwan. The spheres weigh up to 200 pounds apiece. Some articles about the Floating Spheres of Continuity can be found here and here. There’s also a video interview with Scotchie. I haven’t been able to find any photos of the installation online yet.

If the producer likes how the music fits, there’s a possibility that the song could be used in the full-length documentary, which is intended to be aired on national television. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.
