music for driving and film

Music that evokes distant horizons, examines fleeting moments and illuminates shifting perspectives. A three album cycle produced over a span of twelve years, each album features music scored for, used in or presented with film. Each reveals a deliberate sonic narrative with sequenced ups and downs, shifting scenes and scenery that serves equally well as a soundtrack for epic drives. 2018’s Vol iii, The Desert Years is a meditation on the demon lover that is the desert and was recorded in Joshua Tree, CA with Danny Frankel, Damian Lester, Victoria Williams, Wally Ingram, Lisa Mednick Powell and Janie Cowan. “Imagine Ennio Morricone and Brian Eno thumb wrestling in the back seat of a moving ’66 Thunderbird to see who’ll pay the tab after a night of tequilla at a desert punk bar” press | quotes
