Musician and film addict.
Stephen Steinbacher & Zach Barrett annihilate your senses with this neon-soaked Maya Deren homage. Features exhilarating genre tropes amidst visuals that my mind would like to mop up and stew in for at least an eternity. Hoods up, Mirrors out, Check this asap:
And if you'd like to hear the whole album:
So I have a new full length album out. It is not, despite how I've set this up, a live score for Hausu (but feel free to watch the movie with my album playing!)
It's actually an 8 song album I wrote throughout the pandemic going through the grieving process after my father's death in July 2020.
So why Hausu then? Well, I rented it right at the beginning of the first lockdown in March 2020 and it was…
3rd short from Apocalypse After and this one's a speedy li'l brain-scrambler.
A cabaret number involving a tentacle with a camera on it... ends up going.. well, you can imagine...
I'd normally say "calamity ensues" here but really it's just a winding down of the senses with a haunting conclusion involving ketchup being drizzled onto a spinning record.
I'm really not making this stuff up. Will be pretentious and unwatchable to 97% of the population, but us in the 3% are living for it.
My 2nd dip into this Apocalypse After collection is a total hell yeah mind bender!
Bertrand Mandico goes full on body horror excess with a 30 minute plunge into a deranged goop-drama. Two actresses discover a bizarre li'l creature and embark on an obsessive relationship with it.
Whatever you're picturing, turn the colours and dreamy power up 11 notches. This is Henenlotter fried in technicolour butter, then strained through the psycho-babble of Cronenberg on a bag of shrooms.
Sleazy, hilarious, jarring, and entirely too strange and sweaty for most normal people to consume. Really glad I picked this collection up!
So here it is. This is the live score I wrote for Inferno. Performed live in a movie theatre in Toronto last October but now with plague-life reducing us to strictly home viewing, I've assembled a revised/improved version so you can stream it at your own convenience.
First Off: Play As Loud As Humanly Possible - OR - HEADPHONES!
Actually, headphones would be my go to choice, anything to ensure the bass is overwhelming and all details can be…
Gaspar Noe's latest slice of experiential cinema takes us through the final dour days of an elderly couple, played by Dario Argento and Francoise Lebrun. Dario has heart problems, Francoise has dementia. Their son comes to visit them with an increasing concern for their well-being. The two aged lovers seem lost within these labyrinthine walls, no idea what prescription drugs are being swallowed and what terrifying mistake could be around the corner.
Yes it's a bummer and it's the wallowing…
