Hunter’s Moon is a soundtrack inspired by the designs available at mkcurio.com. It’s also the launch of my new musical alter ego, Phantomship, a cloaking device I’ll be using for deep and dark mixes and compositions.

Clocking in at a sweet 30 minutes it staggers through Maus, Waits, Cure, Jaar, Tricky, Aphex Twin and other purveyors of velvet darkness. Like some sort of calcified horror show it’s pulse doesn’t quicken much above a starry eyed crawl, biding it’s time as it slinks from shadow to shadow.

Turn up the volume. Turn down the lights.

I’ll be standing in line to see this with all the hope and optimism I can muster. It’s a brave thing, tackling the sparkplug of wanderlust for countless feverish and sweaty teens that were seeking more more more more more… Remember the first time you got through it’s pages?

An installation at JFK airport I directed @ The Mill.

I recently directed this piece to tease the release of a new Stephen King movie for A&E. The wizards at the Mill NYC helped me marry footage from an underwater shoot on set, location shooting in the Catskills, an element shoot in an aquarium and a shoot in the dark wilds of New Jersey together to create this little slice of darkness.
