Done in one take, improvised, and NO COMPUTERS, completely ANALOG. Chrissy Lancaster plays electro-acoustic cello through a chain of electronic pedals and samplers, in the same way Jason Somma is processing the video live through his camera feed and analog custom video mixers. In our work together we try to merge sound and visuals by anticipating each other and honing the craft through a rigorous improvisation practice taking turns being the conductor.
Chrissy hears through color.
Jason sees through sound.
Chrissy has played his compositions for President Obama at the Kennedy Honors, been musical director for Bill T. Jones, and has been mentored by the likes of Yo-Yo Ma.
Jason has had his work shown at the Guggenheim, Sundance Channel, and Lyon Opera Ballet.
Featuring 115 people, previously unseen footage of Joey, New York City, a whole bunch of cameos, and a baby in a motorcycle jacket. Gabba Gabba Hey!
