The Crossing Releases Holiday Film ‘You Can Plan on Me’

By David Salazar

The Crossing has announced the release of “You Can Plan on Me,” a new short film by Luke Carpenter and Emma Oehlers with audio by Paul Vasquez.

The video is conducted by Donald Nally and features members of The Crossing performing from their homes.

The music is based on an excerpt of Aaron Helgeson’s “A way far home” with words of Alan Ginsberg, Gordon Henry, Aaron Helgeson after Marguerite Duras (trans. Kazim Ali), Joseph Rolnick (trans. David Lang), Donald Nally and Kevin Vondrak.

“This year, we can’t be together for ‘The Crossing @ Christmas.’ So, this is our way of being together. Some photos, snippets from music of the past, knowing that on the other end of our solo tracks there is a team listening to us and pulling it into a whole – an ‘entire’ – finding our way toward what we can do, embracing what we cannot, and making a record of the time; the Christmas when we were separated, not despite our love for one another, but because of it,” Nally stated in a press release.
