Mr Xquisite: doppelgangerous

Here’s the EP I recorded with my friend Shaun Haurin under the name Mr Xquisite. Shaun wrote most of the lyrics (except on “Fuzzy Logic”), and I wrote the music. Shaun sings on “Stunt Double” and “Monozygotic.” I sing on “Secret Sharer” and “Fuzzy Logic.” We take turns on “The Bride (A Web of Men),” a song inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (The Large Glass). Shaun’s son Sebastian adds a nifty guitar riff to the beginning of “The Bride,” and we’re also joined by Shaun’s friend Christimac. The cover photo is by Kristine Di Grigoli.

Outside the Bachs

Here’s a movie I made for my music class. I call it “Outside the Bachs.” It’s a pun on the fact that the movie is essentially someone opening a box and the music consists of two pieces by Bach that I “corrupted.” (In other words, I’m thinking outside the usual interpretations of these two Bach pieces — hence “Outside the Bachs.”) That’s me opening the box, by the way. My head was in the shop for repairs that day.
