ANIMATORS: Take visuals from hitRECord & put them into motion for this Short Film.
CINEMATOGRAPHERS: Grab your cameras & shoot some winter imagery.
VIDEO EDITORS: Cut together visuals from the site. Specifically, check out the “RE: Snow” collaboration for some wintery resources.
VOCALISTS: Sing some Harmonies or RECord “Ooh”s & “Ahh”s so they can be remixed together to simulate the sound of breath.
INSTRUMENTALISTS: It’d be great to have some Electronic Beats added, in addition to other Instruments & Sound Effects.

Early sketches for the traveling wine-o-phone. Cinematic Underground tour, 2005

We used tuned wine glasses quite a bit on the score for Brick, but as we prepared for the US Cinematic Underground tour, I started thinking about a way to travel with them. Little did I know that my eventual collaborator Jonny Rodgers was simultaneously working on a design, which would go on to accompany the Faux Fix tour years later. His version was much more reliable (the glasses were glued in to a flight case with built-in mics), and while ours were taped into a rickety suitcase, we did think to fill it with christmas lights, so at least that was a score on the visual side of things.

Well, we’re headed to Toronto for the Looper premier, but in the meantime, check out this cue from the soundtrack to The Day I Saw Your Heart (aka Et Soudain Tout Le Monde Me Manque). It has been unavailable in the US for a while, but you can buy it now over on iTunes! Complete with a new Faux Fix song, along with a song I wrote and performed for the movie called Suddenly.

Here’s a snippet of a tune Katie and I wrote that Son Lux remixed.

A little blast from the past, circa 2007. This is our very first collaboration with Mr. Son Lux. Little did we know there would be many more to come…

He snagged and remixed a little vocal clip from “Easy Days & I” — a song off my first solo record, Firecracker. Have a listen!

Finally have a breather to jump back into the raw footage from the My Antagonist video that we shot in an empty house on Cape Cod two years ago. This is the second video I’ve gotten to work on this week. There’s something I love about editing, and it seems to apply to video just as much as it does to audio projects.
