Sounds

WOODSHEDDING TOUR DEMO : This is a cassette I recorded with Brent Delventhal, who mixed, mastered, and duplicated it in less than a week in his cabin in Fulton Hill. It's meant to serve as a demo for some future vinyl release in an extended form. We used some of the magical new Portal Pusher preamps and reverbs that Brent + Joe Lunsford have been building. Abbey Lee Sarver did the artwork for the tapes.





THEN WE WERE JUMPING :
 It was my great pleasure to compose the sounds for this short film animated + directed by Jordan Bruner. The video is based on a poem written by Eve Ensler for One Billion Rising For Justice, an initiative that works toward 'justice for all survivors of gender violence.'
