Some exciting news and events at (((echo magic )))! First off, we are going back to Park City, UT this weekend for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival! Below you can take a look at the awesome projects we are involved with this year. Second, there are some new projects just completed that are sure to be floating your way soon.
Director Rick Alverson’s feature The Comedy, stars none other than Tim Heidecker of Tim and Eric fame. Sound effects editing, foley, and backgrounds were cut by ((( echo magic ))) throughout November and December. Supervision, dialogue, and re-record mixing was handled by genius Gene Park of Toneburst Audio. The Comedy provokes and
disorients; it’s a carefully rendered cautionary fable for the autumn of America.
OK Breathe Auralee
Director Brooke Swaney’s short film, OK Breathe Auralee is also premiering at Sundance as part of the shorts competition. ((( echo magic ))) crafted the entire post production audio, from the editing to the final re-record mix. Take a journey with a baby-crazed young lady.
Already a huge festival favorite, Nat Livingston Johnson and Greg Mitnick’s The Kook will screen as part of the Slamdance 2012 shorts festival in Park City. This is a hilarious and thrilling short touching on such topics as group psychology, space travel, and death cults. Sound designed by (((echo magic))) back in early 2011.
Another film we are very proud of, Granger Davis’ The Chair is a stunning film shot in 35mm in South Carolina lowlands. We sound designed, edited, and mixed a lush 5.1 soundtrack and completed in mid December. There are some very exciting festival announcements we will make shortly about this one!
Hiss Golden Messenger‘s Poor Moon was released in November to a very receptive audience. It has been hailed by everyone from Uncut Magazine to The Independent Weekly. All of this great press was a very nice surprise to the few of us involved in making this record, so much so that we are already knee deep in another HGM record, and as recording gets done this Winter/Spring, I promise to keep you updated.
The end of 2011 also marked the completing of some great music projects, such as a fabulous upcoming Family Band record that was recorded at Miner St Studios in Philly and mixed both at (((echo magic ))) studios and at Miner St.
Finally, stay tuned to hear about a solo performance by Dunedin Dunedin (my musical alias) March 9th at Storefront BK in Bushwick. Save the date.
