Video: Each day, all day, the staff of Hospital Wing takes to the skies at a moment’s notice to transport critically ill patients from rural areas, disaster scenes and anywhere else someone is in distress. It is a dangerous, highly skilled job that plays out in confined spaces, at the mercy of weather and a host of other variables.

Project background: The Soundtrack Project is an eight-part multimedia project I created to team symphony composers with local business owners in Memphis, Tennessee. The idea was to fashion unique vernacular scores for each video by allowing the composer to engage with each subject and experience aspects of their industry firsthand. The videos were housed at memphischamber.com/soundtrack, adpated for a half-hour PBS special, and played with live accompaniment at a special Memphis Symphony Orchestra concert.
