AMID THE BEAUTY
"Here is a performance I did of a song I wrote 'Amid the Beauty'. Chris Colton played on my grandfathers piano. This has been an incredibly challenging year for us all and so much worse for so many.It has also been an incredible year with so many fantastic people and memories. 'Amid the beauty I see broken pieces everywhere. Amid the darkness I see beauty everywhere.'

CEMETERY: IS DEATH?
By Jennifer Elster
Jennifer Elster invites a group of talented New York City artists to her studio . Upon arrival, they become part of a tragicomedy, an experimental musical art piece that is just as much charged with anger as it is humor, but still the question remains: IS DEATH FINITE? This piece has been performed at The Development Underground, The New Museum, Central Booking Gallery, Cornelia Street Cafe, and Westpark.
IS DEATH FINITE? features Jennifer Elster, who wrote and directed the piece as well as provided harmony and vocals. Sugar Vendil (classical pianist, The Noveau Classical Project) and Trevor Gureckis (award winning composer and producer, Found Objects and Kanye West's Freestyle 4 ) play the keyboard, Crockett Doob (editor, Beasts of the Southern Wild) is on drums and Julia Wilkins (experimental dancer, ‘here there nowhere’ ) dances.
