The project that started my collaboration with Brendan Canty. An attempt to document a slice of a local music scene and it’s temporal nature. We would choose a local curator in a particular city to select bands, each band would play one song in a house that was soon to be demolished or burned by the fire department, we would film the houses’ destruction, and put out a DVD. We put out DC, Chicago, Portland, Seattle and (released 10 years later) Atlanta.
