JBFC Mixtapes is an initiative from the Burns to highlight the music—from soundtracks to scores—that makes the cinematic experience so special. Vol. 19 comes to us from Peter Pucci, host of Dance on Film’s annual shorts program, Dancers Dancing, who writes: “This playlist represents a mix of eclectic music from some of the dance shorts from this year’s edition of Dancers Dancing: Love Stories. With love stories in mind and inspired by this year’s lineup of short films, I included some of the current music that I’m listing to and considering for future choreographic projects. There are a lot of awesome and unexpected choices included on this mixtape. As a choreographer, music inspires me to create new dances. I’m always surprised and amazed by the extraordinary music that accompanies movies.”
