Current creative projects
Composer Matt Marks and Nick began work to collaborate again, before Matt’s death in early 2018. The project, to develop "Headphone Splitter" as a new pop-opera mini-series about a serial killer in South Brooklyn, will now continue. Nick plans to film the first three episodes of the series, which Matt composed/recorded and is currently seeking funding. They last worked together on the smash hit The House of Von Macramé at The Bushwick Starr.
