Our 11th episode features guitarist Justin Mazer (Ryan Montbleau), bassist Caitlin Gray (Hurray for the Riff Raff), keyboardist Matt Trowbridge (RANA) and drummer David Butler (Guster, Marco Benevento) as they improvise a soundtrack to Godfrey Reggio's cult classic documentary, Koyaanisqatsi. Philip Glass move over!
We are going big for episode 10 with the most psychedelic and intense film to date and I couldn't have assembled a better crew of musicians to tackle it. Today we have Dave Harrington (Darkside) on guitar, Robbie "Seahag" Mangano (Tom Morello, Sean Lennon) on guitar and bass, and Steve Okonski (The National Reserve) on keys and synths. Enjoy!
This month we are going way past the moon in an epic drama of adventure and space exploration with Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. I'm really excited to have this trio for this film consisting of Marc Friedman (The Slip, Ryan Montbleau) on bass, Scott Metzger (JRAD, Wolf!) on guitar and myself on drum kit and percussion. Get ready to get weird!
For episode 7, we are tackling the amazing 2011 Terrence Malick film, A Tree Of Life. Guitar slinger Luca Benedetti and Kevin Kendrick (who left his vibraphone at home and brought turntables and synths) came by to help improvise an album while watching the movie. With this trio you really get to hear everyone's musical voices clearly and it doesn't disappoint!
For episode 4, we are going into master filmmaker Akira Kurosawa's head! Guitarist Robbie Seahag Mangano (The GOASST, Tom Morello) and bassist Jordan Scannella (Tortured Soul) came by the studio to improvise a soundtrack to the 1990 Japanese magical realism film, Dreams.
For episode 2, guitarist Scott Metzger (Joe Russo's Almost Dead, Amy Helm, Wolf!), bassist Andrew Altman (Railroad Earth) and pedal steelist Philip Sterk came by the studio to improvise a soundtrack to the 1988 French film, The Bear.
For episode 1, guitarist Jamie McLean (Aaron Neville, Brett Dennen, Dirty Dozen Brass Band), vibraphonist Kevin Kendrick (A Big Yes And A Small No) & bassist Justin Kimmel (Toubab Krewe) came by the studio to improvise a soundtrack to the 2011 movie, Samsara.
