    The ZIPPERZ album features a full color booklet with a synopsis and liner notes from composer Nathaniel Stookey. The recording is produced by Nathaniel Stookey with Minna Choi and Andrew Vernon serving as co-producers.
    ZIPPERZ, a hip and edgy romantic comedy for two singers and symphony orchestra, is a “dream come true for any lover of music and the written word” (SFist). The album, starring Manoel Felciano and Robin Coomer, tells the story of a love affair from two different perspectives at the same time through “dance numbers, pop ballads, and terse little melodic interchanges” (San Francisco Chronicle).
    “Nathaniel Stookey is the composer of the hour,” raves 21st Century Music. “With a growing list of compositions that includes The Composer Is Dead with Lemony Snicket, Junkestra for found percussion, and incidental music to Bertolt Brecht's The Caucasian Chalk Circle, Stookey has struck it rich again with a brilliant ZIPPERZ. Dan Harder's "zipper" poems provide the libretto, presenting a love story simultaneously from the perspectives of both lovers, in interlocking lines that yield third meanings when combined.”
    The creative team of ZIPPERZ also includes Donato Cabrera (Conductor), Minna Choi (Artistic Director, Magik*Magik Orchestra), and Jeff Mars (drums).
    ZIPPERZ tells the story of two singers at a club that’s been there for as long as anyone can remember. Night after night, they put on the same boy-meets-girl routine, but tonight, at intermission, their carefully rehearsed set takes an unexpected turn. The insightful and unique structure of Stookey and Harder’s piece– like being inside two people’s heads at the same time – brings out the complex he-said-she-said of a blossoming relationship.
    ZIPPERZ was commissioned and premiered by The Oakland Symphony, with funding from The Baker Street Foundation.

    2. But, wait, that was a glance…
    3. Well, that wasn’t so hard!
    4. But I don’t call
    5. Well, fella, two can play at that game
    6. Hello, it’s… Yes?
    7. Any first date is a strange thing
    8. Like the two sides of an emotional equation
    9. Suddenly
    10. Oh, god, this wasn’t supposed to happen
    11. We kiss
    12. Duet for two cigarettes
    13. But now, what do we do?
    14. Excuse me, dear
    15. Love is blind
    16. I’ve thought and thought
    17. If
