about

Last October I agreed to write songs for all thirteen days of the 13 Days 13 Shorts Festival 2014, a yearly celebration of all things Halloween, if I was unemployed. Well, it turns out I had just quit my last job at the time so I was put to task.

The Autumn Fall is the result of the delightful and at times maddening effort to write, record, mix, and master songs based off the themes of that year. It contains folktale-esque ramblings about The Hobbit and Sleepy Hollow, EDM-lite songs about sugar skulls and Disney’s Halloweentown, shoegaze jams about turnips and haunted houses, an Imogen Heap-aping tune about Alien from the perspective of Lt. Ripley’s cat, and even a gritty jazz tune about that one really bad X-Files episode with vampires.

For 2015 I remastered all thirteen of these spooky tunes plus two older 13 Days 13 Shorts songs from 2012 and 2013, AND I wrote and recorded a brand new song for this year’s festival based on today’s theme ‘Night.’ Halloween is my favorite holiday and Fall is my favorite season even if I live in Los Angeles. Come celebrate the insanity with me. Don’t forget to bring your pumpkin spice everything.
