ORIGINAL SOUNDSCAPE FOR "McFOWL!"

To create the visuals for this piece, Trevor Adams shot Super 8 footage and then meticulously treated the film frame by frame. Inks, paint, and scratches accumulate as a dreamlike cascade of image and color.

I responded with tonalities culled from acoustic and electronic instrumentation, field recordings, and processed samples. The sound scrambles, tumbles, and streams in appropriate conversation with the flow of imagery.

While waiting to get a high-quality transfer of Trevor's film back from Saving Tape, I roughed in a score from memory, thinking I'd tighten up the relationship between sound and image later. But when I laid what I saw as a rough draft up against the visuals, I really liked the dialogue. The relationship was close but not exactly synced, which I found really effective.

This film was originally commissioned as a part of Art/ Road/ Movie, a screening organized to premiere Kevin Obsatz's film Crazy Horse. It subsequently screened at the Square Lake Film and Music Festival.
