mcenroe :: Burnt Orange

mcenroeBurnt Orange” // Peanuts & Corn Records // Released 20 August 2014.

This record is the long overdue followup to disenfranchised, which came out like 10 years ago. That is ridiculous, isn’t it?

The record is about the collapse and rebirth of civilization. Its nice and light.

I wrote it from 2010 – 2013, then played with the beats for a while, then did nothing in particular, then mastered it, then didn’t put it out for another while, and then BAM here it is.

This record is not about me at all, isn’t that neat?”

// Jeff Spec is on it. Noah23 is on it. Yy is on it.

Sarah Michaelson sings on several tracks – Petroleum Soda / Burnt Orange / Futura Bold / The Art of the State. Thanks Sarah!

Everything else was done by mcenroe aka Rod Bailey.

Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland

In October of 2011, a small group of filmmakers, photographers and musicians travelled to the remote countryside of Iceland to document their experience with the landscape, traditions and people encountered along the way.

Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland is a collaborative multimedia project about a small group of filmmakers, photographers and a musician who set out on a journey to explore the remote countryside of Iceland in October of 2011, meeting there for the first time. The film features photographers Tim Navis (LA) and Kim Holtermand (Denmark), as well the electronic composer Deru – who composed and curated an original score based on field recordings from the trip.

Produced by Scenic, the mission was to improvise and document our experiences with the landscape, residents, and traditions we encountered. We aimed to synthesize the material we came back with into a group-produced collection of moving pictures, photography, and music. The production and materials for the project were almost entirely funded through a Kickstarter campaign. The countless post-production hours were volunteered and the tracks on the music compilation have been contributed by many talented international producers and composers who have been gracious enough to collaborate on this not-for-profit project.

Director / Editor / Animation: Anthony Ciannamea • Director of Photography: Mark Wisniowski.
Cinematography: Mark Wisniowski / Ryan Sievert / Anthony Ciannamea / Brett Carlson.
Photography: Tim Navis / Kim Holtermand • Art Direction / Design: Ryan Sievert.
Composer / Music Supervisor: Deru (Benjamin Wynn).
