Thielke Composes for Searcey’s Short

Composer Tanya Thielke has been hired by Director Rachel Searcey to create an original score for her short film STAND STIlLL exploring the theme of COVID isolation and re-emergence. It’s a perfect match for this particular composer’s artistic style and methods, which are developed from her own field recordings; “neXt”, sponsored by Sound Scene Global 2021, featured Tanya’s own COVID isolation soundscapes. Rachel and Tanya met at a WIFT-US national networking event in 2021.

Tanya (a.k.a. Tantroniq and pictured above) has also launched a continuous audio installation in the form of an online radio station. Exclusively featuring her own content, the “station” operates 24/7 without commercial content and will serve as the hub for a number of projects. New material is added regularly, and the station is meant to be tuned into at any time. Currently, Tantroniq Radio is the home of “Search for Extra Terrestrial Audiences” or S.E.T.A.
