Meet your teacher: Hans Indigo Spencer
Long ago, the Boston Globe tagged me a “master composer” for my work with my band The Indigo Invention Group. Since working with that group and Boston’s Jazz Composer’s Alliance, I have written music for choreographers, theater directors, and television producers.
I thrive on collaboration, able to write in pretty much any style and sound palette you throw at me. My work composing scores for documentaries and animation can be heard on networks including Discovery, Nat Geo, History and PBS.
My original scores for Portland Stage’s productions of “A Christmas Carol” and “The Snow Queen” live in their archives along with live production footage. I’ve also live-scored hundreds of short-form improvisation theater and educational performances. I love to compose, improvise, and collaborate. And I’ve done it a lot.
