A stop-motion short by Kirsten Lepore. Music by yours truly. Soundtrack available here.
I had the pleasure of scoring Kirsten Lepore's guest directed, Emmy award-winning episode of Adventure Time from Season 7, 'Bad Jubies'. This is one of my favorite shows and I wanted to honor the feeling of open-ended creativity I feel is often on display when watching it, so I set out to create a collage aesthetic. I asked a bunch of friends to contribute samples to the score, and I was showered with all kinds of wonderful sounds. Guitars, organs, vocalizations, old answering machines, and that's just scratching the surface really.
Special Thanks to: Kirsten Lepore (nature collages), Joseph Bourgeois (gameboy and various voice samples), Liz Ryerson (amazing answering machine recordings), Mateo Lugo (jaw harp from one of our sessions), Dan Cantrell (accordion from one of our sessions), Mark DeNardo (wonderful acoustic guitar and dobro recordings), Dan de Lara & Matt Powell (drums, organ and pianet), Martin Kvale (cool weird synth things), Jay Tholen (ukelele, guitar, keyboards), John DiMaggio (for being Jake the Beatboxing Dog wonder), Mathijs Wiermans & Anne la Berge (for avant garde flute improvisations), and Dino Lionetti (because I sampled his circuit bent keyboard).
