Filming Still Can't Fall

Filming Still Can't Fall

In November of 2016, I flew out to Switzerland to work with Meissuers.ch to make a visual adaptation of Still Can't Fall (feat. Nori), off the From Your Window EP. 

Here are a few of the photos I took during my week stay.

I stayed with Gabriel of Messieurs, in a town called Busigny. 

I walked around the town whenever I could.

Gabriel and I spent a few days location scouting.

Seeing snow is always a highlight for me.

Marie (costume design/makeup) let us film the interior shots at her place. 

What I remembered most, for some reason, is the light in Marie's attic.

Setting up the set for the indoor shots required lots of prepping.

After finishing the indoor scene, we cooked dinner, and signed Marie's wall.

Up next to film was the outdoor scene.

Originally there were going to be more dancers in the video, but there ended up being two versions. You can watch the other version with the other dancers here

One day, my new friends took me up to see the Swiss Alps. 

Last day I was there, Gabriel showed me around the nearby city of Lausanne.

Last night of my stay, we all got fondue. Probably the best fondue I've ever had.

And just like that, my week in Switzerland was over too soon, and it was time to fly home.

Had a connecting flight at the Amsterdam airport, where I caught this sight.

As much as I'd like to share with you every single photo I took, I think these memories pretty much sum up the week.

Thank you for checking it out. 

Until next time,

May in Asheville, NC

May in Asheville, NC

Spent most of the month of May in Asheville, North Carolina.

You can see for yourself here in this video. 

Although I mainly make music on my own, sometimes I collaborate with people who I feel on the same page with. In this specific case, I felt my friend Ryan could help bring out the warmth of summer on this track for the Calendar Project. 

Ryan goes under the name Koresma for his music. To give you a better idea of Koresma's style on his own, his track "Bridges" showcases his smooth guitar work very nicely. 

Ryan has been a long standing collaborate of mine for a few years now. Although we have a slew of unreleased tracks, a good bit of the music we've worked together on have been formative towards my production style. 

Here's an older track we did together called "Folds."

Besides the music though, it's always a good time making the trip up to Asheville to kick it with friends and check out the scenery. 

Koresma lives about a 15 minute drive from downtown Asheville, which is a super neat spot. Has a bunch of unique restaurants, beer breweries, miscellaneous shops,  and a couple of great music venues (we saw Bonobo play at the Orange Peel during my stay). 

The world famous synthesizer manufacturer, Moog, is based out of Asheville.

Highly recommend you take the tour of the Moog factory if you're a music maker though. You'll be amazed at the process that goes into making these synths.

Also, it was the first time I got to play a theremin. Let me tell you - that is a very difficult instrument to play.

If anything, walking around the town, you'll find something you'll like. 

Chilling at my favorite spot in downtown Asheville: Dobra Tea.

Of course though, my favorite part of North Carolina is the beautiful nature all around. Whenever I crash with Ryan, we always make the trip to the nearby mountains. 

Steep drive & short walk.

The "Asheville Sandwhich:" mango sriracha hummus, havarti cheese, tomatoes & avocados. Goes well with mountaintop views.

What's really neat is you get this blanket of fog in the mountains after it rains that makes you feel like you're on top of the world looking down. 

This brings me to the end of this entry. I hope this gives you a better insight into the track, and maybe piques your interest a little to go visit North Carolina. 

Until next time,

Spending March in London

For March on the Calendar Project, I decided to take a last minute flight to London and met people I've only known online.
