Case Studies: The World is Just a Shape to Fill the Night
Statement from the artist, Jesse Lortz:Most of these songs were recorded were recorded with friends during Feb. 2011 by Greg Ashley (Gris Gris) in a secluded cabin in Sequim, WA. Milana, Julia, Nicolas, Keegan, Greg, Suzie, Lisa, and Andrew came to the Washington cabin to contribute to the album and take photographs and video. I wanted friends to join me because making records had always been a lonely process for me and I was ready to change that dynamic. Because this project is not a "band" the focus has shifted so that I can play shows alone, or with other people. I started writing the songs for this record when I was still married and the most recent song was written on my 32nd birthday. This project also incorporates drawing, jewelry making, non-musical creative writing and a host of disciplines that I never got the chance to explore in previous bands. I am genuinely excited to be making music for probably the first time in my life.
