Duncan Sheik's Phantom Moon Press Kit
Phantom Moon- a primarily acoustic project recorded for Nonesuch Records--has its genesis last year when Duncan Sheik began collaborating with New Year playwrite Steven Sater, who he'd met a Soka Gakkai International, a lay Buddist organization. Sater, who directs the SGI arts division, approached Sheik to ask if he might be interested in writing music to a set of lyrics culled from his play, "Umbrage."
