Hey folks! Happy to announce that the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Don Jon is out today!
It’s a breezy (and short!) musical ride through Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s fantastic directorial debut and I had an amazing time working with him on it. A big shout out to my core team on this one: Judson Crane - orch arrangements, Son Lux - synth programming, and Jonny Rodgers - featured guitar soloist.
The iTunes version of the album comes with a digital booklet featuring thoughts from Joe and myself, along with pics from the film. And the movie is still in theaters, so have yourself a good night out!

Don Jon Theme (Midnight Acoustic Version)


So in honor of Don Jon opening tomorrow, here’s a little video that Joe shot in the REC room after a long day of recording the score. It was late at night and Jonny Rodgers had finished his guitar parts for the movie when we grabbed a couple acoustic guitars and recorded an impromptu version of my theme for the film. Joe caught it on tape and we present it now for your visual and auditory pleasure. The actual score sounds drastically different, but this piece ended up closing out the credits so you’ll hear it if you stay ‘til the end:)

Hope you enjoy the movie: Nationwide tomorrow!

If you’re not familiar with Jonny Rodgers from all of our frequent collaborations, this would be a good time to check him out. Just take a moment to watch the tuned-glass master lay down layer after looping layer of goodness in a sneak peak of his new material.

Jonny Rodgers - Everything Is Yours

19 Tuned Wine Glasses, Guitar, Softstep, Axiom25, Ableton Live

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.

Faux Fix Live

Here’s a little vignette that a friend cut together from one of our shows in Nashville. We’ve just added more dates in Boston this weekend, and we’ve got a brand new soon-to-be-announced New York show coming up on the 21st in case any of you city-dwellers missed the last two.

Noah was wondering about the light box effect in the photo I posted of Jonny opening the Faux Fix shows… It’s actually a bundle of Christmas lights in the base of the glass case snaking around the stems. 

Ooooh, pretty!

(Sorry for the clunky photo reply but I can’t figure out another way of doing it from the tumblr app. Also, Noah, we miss you!)
