(Partially excerpted from the Hey Angels website)
Hey Angels is a documentary. It is a fiction. It is a feature. It is a collection of short films. It is a multi screen installation. It is a collaboration. It is an auteurist self-exploration. Hey Angels is a work that takes the form of a dream, a memory, ever shifting, ever changing, with both its meaning and interpretation contorting and changing as often as its form.
I composed “Joshua,” “Katie” and “Videotape” using a MicroKorg XL Synthesizer and an archive of field recordings and found sound provided by the filmmaker, Sam Boullier. Each track was created to establish a dense, richly melodic sense of atmosphere, with many compositional processes being left to chance and co-incidental synchronicity. By looping and arranging parts, I experimented with dissonant, drawn-out movements.
