first came the film (3weeks of garagerock
claymation) and then came the music.
each individual musician recorded an improvised
track while reacting to & watching the film for the
first time. no clues. no hints. no idea.
no headphones allowed. all of the tracks (eleven
total) were recorded seperately without hearing
any of the other tracks.
once all the tracks were down, the whole piece
was mixed musically and then added to the film.
success! nicely done, everyone.
thanks to all the players, josh and mike at muted
tones tense forms for making it all happen in the
virtual realm, and to bud for all the love supreme
engineering and assistance in the recording realm.

“Darwin hypotheses that in general, the extremes tend to be selected, as each finds a different means of surviving in changed environments, though its important to note that sometimes none or too few of the animals have the needed characteristics. In this case, the population or species goes extinct.”

A town where few or no people now live.
A once-flourishing town wholly or nearly
deserted usually as a result of the
exhaustion of some natural resource.

“Why is the voice of a man not heard
by day as it is heard by night?
Because of the wheel of the Sun
which saws in the sky
like a carpenter sawing cedars.”
—cited in Grimm, ‘Deutsche Marchen’

“The range of human hearing is technically, between 20 and 20,000 hertz. Infrasound is below 20 hertz. It’s been documented that one 19-year-old girl could hear at 19 hertz, but the average person - who has been exposed to car noises, loud noises, and maybe a rock concert or two - is probably hard pressed to hear below 30 or 40 hertz.”
