We went out to CA this summer and shot a video on Super 8 for the song My Ocean. The footage came back from the lab looking more blown out and scratched than we could have possibly hoped for… must have developed it on the floor. Bad film really creates a mood… check out a little bit here.
“Pierre Henry,” 2006
Wood and woodburning tool
12 x 8 x 10 inches
Here’s one more piece of fan art I made, also of an influential musician – Pierre Henry. I semi-three-dimensionalized the photo from the back of his album Messe pour le temps présent. The mix of pop and musique concrète on that album really blew my mind.
Wood, ink, stain
20 x 20 x 6 inches
As we are a new band, I thought it would be appropriate to post a little on our influences. One of my favorite musicians of all time is Ryuichi Sakamoto. A few years ago, I was making small fan art sculptures and started with him. I think this captures the class, refinement, and ‘piano bar’ stylings he is known for.
