some recordings I was going to make into a "real album" but decided not to. maybe someday.
excerpt from an email:
"I sat down, and after three hours passed, and the best song of mine in a while had been recorded, i decided to ride the inspiration wave and produce a (mini-)album's worth of material in just those four days.
Rosemont & Wayne is the result - 30 minutes of improvised avant-folk sound collections built around field recordings taken in and around my Chicago apartment over the summer of 2017. Sounds were made, ideas were born, mistakes happened, nearly all was preserved. I was really just trying to make things work in the moment, kind of like my life recently and also everyone's. I think it turned out pretty well."
released September 23, 2018
instruments (in order of appearance):
rosemont - wind chimes/wind, classical guitar, piano, violin (open strings), uke

catterpillar - birds, hammered dulcimer, classical guitar, dizi (I had no idea how to play this instrument at the time), piano, uke
Ableton live (mostly just overdubbing, a bit of granular/ambient stuff here and there using simpler)
dedicating this to the super north part of Chicago that I miss, my favorite grocery store devon market, metropolis coffee, my old roommate Vincent Blackshadow, my cat that triggers Jade's eczema, and my first apartment where my sister used to live too. some fucking good memories there. you can hear it all in the acoustics of the space and the sound outside.
thanks to M. Sage and Ben Chlapek too. they had some nice words on this one. I always appreciate that kind of shit.
