Jami Sieber and Evan Schiller join together to create a soundtrack unlike any of Sieber’s other work. When they first began working on the film, one of the directors Eric Slade said, “We mostly would like instruments other than cello on the soundtrack.” Sieber and Schiller took that as a challenge and with fun they created an eclectic and unpredictable soundtrack – combining flutes, bells, drums, organ, accordion, trumpet, sax, guitars, keyboards, sampled sounds and a little cello here and there. Also, featured are a few poems by James Broughton, in his own voice recorded years ago – sprinkled throughout the recording. The CD leaves you with a feeling of Joy – BIG JOY! 

Featuring: 

Jami Sieber: electric and acoustic cello, vocals, keyboards 
Evan Schiller: drums, keyboards, sampled sounds 
Hans Teuber: sax, bass clarinet, clarinet, flute, pocket trumpet 
Nova Devonie: accordion 
Tim Young: acoustic and electric guitars 
Benjy Wertheimer: tabla

THIS IS IT #2 by JAMES BROUGHTON 

This is it 
This is really it 
This is all there is 
And it’s perfect as it is 

There is nowhere to go 
but Here 
There is nothing here 
but Now 
There is nothing now 
but this 

And this it 
This is really it 
This is all there is 
And it’s perfect as it is 

About the Film: BIG JOY:The Adventures of James Broughton 

“James Broughton was known to us in the late 20th century as the herald of Joy. He was a brilliant poet and film-maker, a performer, and a riot of color, ideally suited to the utopian expectations of the Sixties. He was also a deeply complex man who drew his beneficent Joy from a well of centuries’ old sorrows. This film rises to the majesty and complexity of James Broughton’s work, illuminating a totemic figure. The wingspan of James Broughton’s fancy reaches well out of his time into ours, thanks to this film.” Andrei Codrescu 

A chronicle of the iconoclastic life of gay poet, filmmaker, and spiritual visionary James Broughton, one of the defining voices of the sexual revolution, whose groundbreaking artistic celebrations of sexuality and the body influenced generations of the 1960’s and 70’s to profoundly embrace life and ‘follow your own weird’. A charismatic and visionary poet and filmmaker who emerged in the artistic renaissance of post-WWII San Francisco, James Broughton led a completely unconventional existence in his lifelong quest for creative artistry, sexual and spiritual love and an evolved state of happiness. 
BIG JOY:The Adventures of James Broughton is a celebratory mosaic of Broughton’s deeply intertwined creative and personal lives, vividly depicted through his involvement with a wide array of artists, activists and spiritual guides.
