Jonny Rodgers - Swung On A Swing
Happy Friday, Folks.
Check out my good friend and frequent collaborator Mr. Jonny Rodgers as he plays glass and guitar near our house in Connecticut. I know it’s a pain to click on a video in your Tumblr feed, but this one is worth it.
Jonny played on The Brothers Bloom score, the Faux Fix record, and recently he made his wine glasses sing on the new French film I scored (more on that soon). But here, he goes solo with a loop pedal. Beautiful!
One shot, live - this is an excerpt from a documentary that was shot in October about my Wine Glass Music, by the filmmaker Kevin Kelley - documentary coming soon! We’d gone up the CT coast to shoot in some abandoned, broken greenhouses, but the weather turned really sour, so we were forced to take shelter under this portico. We feared was almost too “pretty”, but it ended up being the best shelter we could find from the cold and wet weather. We did this as an extra after a long afternoon of shooting - it was a single take, and I love how the sun began to break through just as we began shooting - what light!
