Julian Beutel is a Winnipeg based composer for film and video games interested in music and sound’s ability to represent emotion and tell a story. Collaborating with Los Angeles artist Seth Boyden and songwriter Angie Shyr, they are telling a story through music and sound of the rotating cast of tenants of an apartment kitchen, and the wide range of events that end up taking place in that space. Julian has scored the shorts An Object At Rest (Seth Boyden), If It Ain’t Got (Nicola Baldwin/Miles Crossen), and strategy game Skyboats (BrainGoodGames), and is an avid Game Jam attendee. He has performed with local artists Slow Spirit, Lanikai, Living Hour, and the Dirty Catfish Brass Band, and has his own electronic project, Yellow Light.

And now for something really special.
Musician and composer Julian Beutel had a different idea of how to make use of the PechaKucha Night format. For this "talk", Julian did a live musical performance using a pre-recorded track he composed and did the sound effects right on stage. The piece itself revolves around a central space, the kitchen, and the cast of characters that use it. Julian developed Kitchen Counterpoint in collaboration with Angie Shyr and Seth Boyden.
Julian's performance was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre.
