Buffalo Head! [video]

Posted on

Here’s one from almost 15 years ago… 2005 I think? This one of my first efforts striking out as a composer on my own…

This is a wonderful animated short created, directed, and animated by Ariel Martian. I believe it is based on an Italian folk story/legend/myth. It was such a fun experiment, mixing a live score with 8 bit computer generated sounds.

The band was epic:

Jon-Erik Kellso trumpet
Dan Levinson alto saxophone
David Detweiler tenor saxophone
Nick Balaban piano
Doug Largent Bass
Walker T Pettibone drums & engineer
Yours truly on trombone and Commodore 64

Guy Benny Recording engineer

The late great Peter Robbins also engineered and mixed.

Mixed at Murmur Music thanks to Michael S Rubin

I have many great memories of putting it together with Ariel, and the session itself was truly an unforgettable experience and a really special time.
