a new soundtrack

very excited for an upcoming collaboration for an exhibition of my friend stas orlovski's animation work entitled 'chimera', at the pasadena museum of california art. stas has been making beautiful drawings inspired by soviet era children's books, japanese prints, and dutch botanical illustrations for many years. last year, last year he created an installation of animated drawings for lacma's surrealism exhibition. for this much longer work, stas invited me to create a soundtrack - which included an old harmonium, banjolele, strohviol, voice, and silence. there will be an opening reception on sept. 13 from 7-9 pm, and the exhibition will run until january 11. there will also be a panel discussion with the artist, animator (beau leduc), sound maker.
