R A B I D T . . . M A N I F E S T O R

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.
