- Event Details
- I got laid off from my job at the end of last year and decided I needed a change. My girlfriend put in her two weeks and we moved out to a little cabin in Papaikou, Hawaii. Its a pretty remote place outside of Hilo (i.e no plumbing/electricity/gas). We worked for meals during the day cultivating indigenous microorganisms and learning the basics of sustainable living. We drank showered and cooked with rain water. It was a beautifully simple experience. In our downtime, she would paint and I would record. Wed have to light candles in an effort to save solar power to keep my computer running. We inspired each other a lot out there, and I think it shows on the album. She sings on a lot of the tracks on All Night. The music comes from a place of love and ease. The video for Endless Spring was shot there in our spare time, and the music was sketched out loosely over the course of a few months. We just kind of melted into one person. We were able to keep our heads above water for a few months before we both went broke and moved back to Chicago. I put together all the arrangements and field recordings, and that became All Night. I really wanted it to be something special. The album was finished in a very untraditional way that I believe compliments the unique way it was conceived. It was mixed at Sound Mind studios in Chicago by Dash Tortoriello, and then sent to Capsule Labs in Los Angeles for mastering. All night was pressed to vinyl on a vintage Neumann cutting lathe and then sent through a series of old analog mastering equipment. It was then routed back into the computer giving us a digital version of a vinyl pressing. You can hear all the beautiful warmth and crackle just like you would if you listened to it on vinyl. The idea is that everyone can hear the very first pressing of All Night. It's a sonically intimate record and we wanted to capture that feeling in the production as well.
