My good friend Javier Lovera has just finished a short called A House No More and he asked me to write some music for it. He’s posted about it here. It gets released sometime next week. He’s an awesome photographer, and took some wicked pictures of my piano while we were recording it.
I finally edited some of the performance Robert Cruickshank and I did at Handmade Music Toronto. We play as Little Oak Animal. Rob’s visuals are all analog – 2 slide projectors and a Super 8 machine – and my sound is all digital, done in Pd.
In honour of the fact that James Robertson is joining Christine and me on Monday, I’ve written out Tell Old Uncle Jimmy, which is our shortest song, and also the closest we get to bedroom soul. You can listen Christine and I play it here.
Here’s the pdf: Tell Old Uncle Jimmy.
Monday we’re probably going to play some Elvis!
I feel lucky to be playing with Christine, and honoured to be on this record, working with such amazing musicians. Once again, Christine’s crafted a really beautiful collection of songs.
