Karen Majewicz and Andy McCormick have been playing and writing music together as Dreamland Faces since 2002. They have composed scores for over 50 silent films and released many original recordings, including one sung in Mandarin Chinese. Their repertoire includes original instrumental pieces, modern classical music, the occasional popular song, and many art songs by composers such as Hanns Eisler.
Karen Majewicz focuses on composing and conducting full scores for silent films. She holds an ethnomusicology degree from the University of Washington and performs on a Siwa & Figli converter (free bass and stradella) accordion.
Andy McCormick is a composer and multi instrumentalist. He writes music for movies, theater, with lyricists, and for friends. Andy enjoys collaborating and is usually willing to experiment. He is a proud musical saw player, ardent supporter of new music, and lifelong bookstore worker. He has also been writing music for full length silent films, recording original instrumental music, and looking for modern programs, such as dance or radio, which could be accompanied by dissonant or experimental music. Andy likes transposing whatever he's listening to into another key, and learning by ear in general. He holds no degrees.
