WE ARE NOT DONE YETComposer for HBO Documentary Film
Wytold worked collaboratively with poet Seema Reza, actor Jeffrey Wright, and Veterans to facilitate the creation of the HBO Documentary Film and theater production “We Are Not Done Yet”. In addition, he composed the musical score for the film and has served as a board member of Community Building Art Works (CBAW) since its founding. Wytold is also a regular performer and facilitator of music workshops for Veterans and Active Duty Service Members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fort Belvoir.
Wytold began working with the Veteran community through Music & Words, a biannual one-week workshop in which participants write, record and perform original spoken word poetry and songs with accompaniment by Wytold and GRAMMY-nominated progressive hip-hop artist, Christylez Bacon in collaboration with poets Seema Reza and Mahogany L. Browne. Veterans featured in “We Are Not Done Yet” have created songs, poems and visual art, as well as deep friendship and bonds, through CBAW workshops like these. After several years of leading Music & Words workshops and giving weekly hospital performances, Wytold joined this team of dedicated artists working daily with Service Members and Veterans to build community and share their stories and messages through art, music and poetry. Today, Wytold continues to teach Service members to play instruments, write songs, and hear music more deeply and fully as they reconnect with their lives outside the military.
