This is one of my favorite projects ever.
Back when I was still doing web-dev for a living I came across this spoken word recording of Lonnie Ray Atkins talking about his home-place, how he took his wife home to die there, and now how the bankers and police were coming to take it away. It touched me so deeply that I knew I had to make something with it.
I was just starting to learn video . audio recording and production at the time but I created this music to capture the feeling I was going for fairly successfully I thought. The video itself leaves something to be desired seeing it through the eyes of a older and more skilled videographer, but I think it does capture emotion.
