DRIVE, 18min., USA, Music Documentary

Directed by Hayley Young

An intimate look inside a musician and producer’s collaborative process. Nationally renowned cellist and composer Joshua Roman records his 2020 Music Journal piece “Drive” with Ryan Hadlock, producer at Bear Creek Studio (Lumineers, Brandi Carlile, Vance Joy, Foo Fighters, Soundgarden). Written and inspired by Roman’s personal journey across the country during the height of the Covid 19 pandemic and racial unrest of this last summer, “Drive” is both an experiment of sound and space as well as an offering of hope and unity through our universal response to music. Full performance of the cello sextet written and performed by Roman and recorded by Hadlock in a turn-of-the-century barn nestled on 10 acres just north of Seattle, Washington.
