Composer Stefan Hakenberg wrote the music to 'The Displacement Map', a a documentary film "in four movements" by Theo Lipfert. It has been showing at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. The final performance is today: Friday, 9 May 9, 14:00 Tribeca Film Center, $10.00. There is more concerning the film at Singing Pictures. The movie is about "an Ohio shopkeeper's daily activities [that] trigger memories of a little-known historical event - the forced relocation during World War 2 of Aleut-Americans from the Aleutian and Pribiloff islands to camps thousands of miles away. ... 'The Displacement Map' uses music and visual clues rather than words to tell an almost universal story of war, displacement, and relocation."

The world premiere of Stefan Hakenberg's 'Nosey' and 'Gussy LaMore', two pieces for two Highland bagpipes and snare drum -- performed by Laurie and Doug Gardner (bagpipes) and David Sheakley (drum) -- takes place on 18 July, 2003, 20:00, Northern Light United Church, Juneau; there is a further concert the next day at the Chilcat Center, Haines.
