I’m heading down to my beloved Austin, TX this weekend for the South By Southwest film festival! The Apocalypse, a short film by Andrew Zuchero (which I sound designed and mixed), will be showing a few times, and I’m very excited to see it on the big screen!
Another project of mine showing during the festival is the mini-series/feature The Fuzz, directed by Duncan Skiles. I spent a big chunk of my winter months cranking away at this thing, and am so psyched to see it in action…. think the Muppets meet Goodfellas… There’s a special screening of the first episode Monday March 11th at Brazos Hall @ 3PM, which you better believe I’ll be at!
In anticipation of all this, I’ve put together a new demo reel – CHECK IT OUT!!
Parquet Courts are playing some sick shows down there too (including the closing party with Kendrick Lamar and Black Lips?!). They have a new single for “Borrowed Time” coming out March 18th on Rough Trade/What’s Your Rupture?, with two previously-unreleased b-sides from the Light Up Gold sessions. One of ’em, “Smart Aleck Kid”, hit the web earlier this week:
I’ve been working on a variety of other projects since wrapping The Fuzz… I finished work restoring and remastering the Del Shannon-produced Brett Smiley tapes, and mixed a long-lost single by little-known glam-rock band Fa Bonx, both for What’s Your Rupture. I’m mixing a couple short films when I get back, and working on a couple albums in April… very excited about spring!!
Thanks for checking this out… and please get in touch if you wanna talk sound or hang in Austin: jonathan[dot]schenke[at]gmail[com] Thanks again!!
