Nick Hallett, Mikael Jorgensen, James Merle Thomas, and William Tyler—works with the Hugh M. Hefner Moving Image Archive at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts to review, select, and score excerpts from Engelberg’s motion picture and audio archives, now known as the Fred Engelberg Collection. Drawing from the artist's footage and his extensive personal reserves of found and stock film,  the Trimbin Band composes and performs live musical accompaniment to Engelberg’s works, which have gone unseen for nearly forty years.

GRAPH RABBIT - "Ode To Street Hassle"

This was the first of several collaborations between Graph Rabbit and I.  I've always loved the lazyness of the original Spacemen 3 track "Ode To Street Hassle," and Austin Donohue and I put our own spin on it.

POD TUNE

I was contacted by the Pod Tune team to see if I was interested in contributing a track to an album of ambient music and humpback whale songs.  I remember very vividly the, black National Geographic flexi-disc containing those haunting, stark and mesmerizing whale recordings, and to be able to jam with the humpbacks was an absolute joy.
