My colleague, Rich LaMotte, and I had the opportunity to meet with our MOC, Grace Meng, in Flushing today to discuss ways to strengthen US copyright laws, continue funding the NEA and music education in public schools!‬ She’s a mensch!!
Many thanks!

I’m absolutely delighted to share the news that “Haunting Days of Halloween” won The @intlsongcomp in the “Inspire Your Songs” promotion category! 👻 The thing that I’m most moved about, is that I wrote this tune during the heavy and dark times of COVID here in Brooklyn, and pushing this song out of my brain became a time of pure joy. I LOOOVED making this tune, and LOOOOVED to see how much fun everyone who took part in recording it had too. 🎶💜🙏🏼 Let’s keep musicking, my friends! Rich Kulsar Linus Wyrsch, Larry Cook, Libby Weitnauer, Nathalia, Rina Miele, MONOLisa Studios and Arf Mastering! And a million thanks to International Songwriting Competition, iZotope and Audeze for the wonderful recognition and prizes! #isc #songwriting #makehalloweeneveryday #believe #keepgoing
Darling Disasters: our latest single, "Houdini," is out TODAY, just in time for your Halloween playlists, and it comes with a spooky true story! Get it on Bandcamp: https://charmingdisaster.bandcamp.com/track/houdini Add it to all of your Spotify playlists: https://open.spotify.com/track/291OikQE4EiPVf2GDO4r0a After WWI and the 1918 flu pandemic, the popularity of spiritualism and séances skyrocketed around the world, as nearly everyone had recently lost a loved one whom they longed to reach on the other side of the mortal veil. The great stage magician Harry Houdini was no exception; he and his wife even had a pact that whoever died first would try to contact the other with a secret code. He spent years searching for a spirit medium who wasn't a fraud. Instead, he found charlatan after charlatan -- and a second career as a debunker of their fakery. After his death, his wife held annual séances at his grave, awaiting word from him, but it never came. But we imagine him trapped on the other side of the veil, trying desperately to break through, in the greatest escape attempt of all time. Happy Halloween.

Musicians in NYC respond to coronavirus (COVID-19) with new original song. This is our fight 💪 When Vivian Fang Liu wrote the song "Same Heart Same Fight" (同心同行 in Chinese), she intended to send hope to the people in China where the virus originated in Wuhan. But the epidemic has quickly spread to all parts of the world. As musicians, our words are better expressed through music. This is our thank-you to healthcare staff around the world for risking your lives to battle with coronavirus; and our message of hope to everyone else to please stay healthy and stay strong. Deepest thanks to: our sponsors Supernova Chinese American Singing Contest #EastsideSoundStudios; Kin Wah for hosting our first public performance; Kin Andy Yuen for the media coverage; Terence Li for filming this with us on short notice; MONOLisa Studios for recording our string quartet; and most importantly, Vivian Fang Liu for your beautiful music, lyrics and flawless singing with the amazing, award-winning singer Evan Zhao; fxystudio for arranging the music; and the string quartet I adore for playing together with me: Victoria Yam, Lucy Huang, and Timothy Roman Lewcun. From the bottom of my heart, Louise Lau
Pics from a recent recording session! We did a string quartet 🎻 recording for a newly composed music by Vivian Fang Liu with fellow musicians Victoria, Lucy and Ro.

This is all part of an upcoming music video. Can’t wait to start editing!
