about

"The Conqueror Worm Suite" is a 6-part suite of music, words and images based on Edgar Allan Poe’s 1843 poem "The Conqueror Worm". Using Igor Stravinsky’s "The Soldier’s Tale" as a reference point, "The Conqueror Worm Suite" consists of a reading of the poem surrounded by original music inspired by it. Ben Holmes & Patrick Farrell present their compositions, Poe's original text, and, in performance, a projected set of animated illustrations by visual artist Natalie C. Sousa.
The full video with Sousa's animations can be viewed here:
