Recorded by Nixon Boyd, a songwriter, recording engineer, and producer, “Stolen Night Sky” was captured on the beautiful Bosendorfer Piano at the St. Pauls’ Centre in Orillia, donated by musician Michael Jones. The video recording of the piece was directed by Anne Douris, an animator, and production designer, and features Hewitt on percussion. The video, shot by local photographer Mathew Waring at the St. Paul’s Centre, complements the composition’s dark yet illuminating theme.
