A few weeks ago, Microsoft brought me onboard for a fun project. They gave me a Lenovo laptop to take down to SXSW and use to make some music. The idea was to record sound samples while walking around Austin, and then use those sounds to create an original song.
A film crew (helmed by director, David Sosnow) joined me in Austin to document my adventures, and then they visited my studio in Brooklyn the following week to check out the progress I was making.
You’ll notice in the video some of the source material I recorded & later manipulated in the song. In particular, the police cone, the handclaps, and of course THE CRAZY WOLFMAN VIOLINIST all make their way into the song somehow or other.
Also, shout out to my trusty sidekick/studio assistant/#1 dog extraordinaire, Tony.
