I’ve had some of the most impactful and surprising creative experiences of my life the last few years as part of @37d03d residencies at the Funkhaus in Berlin. In late April, a group of artists will gather in Brooklyn for a week long @37d03d residency at @pioneerworks in Red Hook with public performances of work in progress on May 3rd and 4th. Pretty sure it’s not to be missed :)
Huge congratulations to @adiavictoria today on the release of her album “Silences” on @canvasbackmusic please go have a listen! I was lucky to be able to work with Adia at Long Pond to help achieve her vision for this record. Big thanks to her collaborator @mason.hickman , Adia’s band, as always @heyjonlow and everyone who contributed ( @brycedessner@landladyband@stuartbogie and more )for the incredible work.
It’s hard to believe Dark Was the Night came out 10 years ago in 2009. @brycedessner and I could never have made this record without support from so many other people and the generous and inspired contributions of all the artists. We appreciate what the music has meant to people and the nice things that have been said about it over the years — but most of all, we’re proud of the fact that we collectively (with everyone who bought the record’s help) raised and donated almost $2 million to AIDS/HIV charities through @redhotorg in the US and internationally. I hope @dayofthedead , a tribute to the Grateful Dead intended somewhat as a sequel to Dark Was the Night, which was released almost 2 years ago, will some day surpass this amount. Special thanks to everyone at @redhotorg@4ad and the entire community involved for your tireless work behind these efforts. The positive impact these projects have had is a reminder that we can band together and do something proactive to counter seemingly insurmountable problems. I’m excited to support and listen to how younger generations of musicians will join together. #darkwasthenight
Thankful to have been part of a deeply cathartic tribute to #scotthutchison@frabbits last night. Thank you to @jennylsq for giving voice to the emotions and loss we all feel — and to @julienrbaker@gibbstack@steadycraig@kevinpdevine for courageously singing your hearts out and most of all the audience who gave the most moving performance of the night — singing the Modern Leper at the top of your lungs when we had run out of songs to play.
Thank you @simonswimmer for the memory. I can’t remember if Scott and I were having a serious conversation or pretending to have one — in the garden outside my garage studio in Brooklyn. I’ve been playing @frabbits songs every day (pretty sure Scott would have found Robin’s harmonica solo here on Death Dream highly amusing...)....we are preparing to pay tribute to Scott in a few days with friends in New York. I wish it wasn’t necessary and Scott was still here — but the songs stand up and burn brightly ....way into the night and beyond the grave. Miss you. #scotthutchison
