2002 Music & Film
John’s interest in combining grooves and literate songs continues into the 21st century with this, his first genuinely multi-media project. He also decided to add a filmic dimension. He wrote and recorded this album of songs, just guitar and voice, over cut-up beats as a rhythm track and then traveled throughout Europe and post 9/11 New York City to ‘find’ musicians at random and record them on his laptop in their homes or even in the street. Sarah Vermeersch filmed the process and edited the footage into a road movie, which accompanies the album as a DVD.
