For one week J. Bannon resided in the C-Scape Dune Shack (formerly known as the Cohen Shack) within the Peaked Hill Bars National Register Historical District in Provincetown, Massachusetts. This primitive environment inspired an outpouring of abstract mixed media work, photography, and music. The visual material from the experience is presented as “Dunedevil” by J. Bannon. Available as a nearly 300 page “smyth sewn” art book and Kindle edition, with a forward by acclaimed artist Thomas Hooper. This book is available now at www.jacobbannon.com
Each day, the skeleton of a song was recorded using a portable recording device powered by a Goal Zero solar power setup. The sounds were captured through an Apogee Duet using a Critter & Guitari mini piano, Martin Jr. guitar, assorted effects pedals, and a Shure SM7B microphone. Mike Mckenzie graciously played additional guitar on “Be Still My Heart” at a later date. All songs were then refined and mixed during the winter of 2016, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. These recordings are presented as “Dunedevil”, an experimental album from Wear Your Wounds. Available on vinyl and digital formats.
The release is meant to be an experimental musical companion piece to the J. Bannon “Dunedevil” art book. Though they can be enjoyed separately, it is suggested that you view the book and listen to the music at the same time. Please note that the book is available individually and is not included in the purchase of this release.
