R. – “Snow Forever”
This was a trio of ambient video pieces I did under the R. name.
I keep coming back to this project, and I feel like there’s something really special about these videos.
This was the view from my window in the studio apartment I shared with a partner on 17th st in Manhattan.
The goals of these pieces was to capture a certain melancholy that I felt at the time.
Ideally, these would be presented on asynchronous loop, on three separate monitors, in a large, shared space.
R. – “Traveling”
Ambient video piece originally designed to be 10x 60 second long sections as interstitials for L’enfer Est Plein De Bonnes Volontés Ou Désirs..
In 2022, I released this as a super limited Proof-of-concept on 8cm/3″ Mini-DVD. It’s a really great format, but getting stock is a little more expensive than Full Size DVD-R’s. I was able to duplicate them in a standard DVD Duplicator, which was nice.
Here’s some photos of them on the counter at Thousands of Dead Gods
R. – “Untitled Love Song”
One of the first R. releases.
R. – “Stay Together for the Kids”
the first full release from R.
Recorded in Glastonbury, CT and Erie, PA between 2004 and 2005.
Produced Exclusively in Sony Acid.
Originally released on a netlabel (not tBL), it’s been LOOOOOONG lost to the internet.
Well, until today, at least.
