The Beloved Stranger
The Beloved Stranger
The Beloved Stranger is a film in parts documenting a sailing voyage from the San Francisco Bay to the Caribbean coast of Colombia, undertaken over five months in 2013-2014. The crew of seven friends, a cat and dog, had little to no experience but set out to build an eco hostel in the Colombian rainforest. The virgin voyagers are met with mishap at every turn, but an unquenchable lust for life propels them forward.

Phainopepla
Phainopepla
Phainopepla’s music can most easily be described by the bird of the same name. Although the phainopepla is known to travel throughout the summer from the Sonoran Desert of the Southwest to California, its specific migrations are relatively unknown and inconsistent. Like the phainopepla, Jake Morris began his life in Tucson, AZ, playing small local rock clubs and jazz gigs, eventually migrating to California in adulthood. Now based in Oakland, the multi-instrumentalist/producer experiments with the marriage of electronic beats and pop sensibilities, resulting in a blend of sounds that transcends specific genre. He creates music that represents the ebbs and flows of emotion that we experience throughout our lives: from hard-hitting indie rock to solitary acoustic strums; from house and techno inspired four-on-the-floor beats to soft falsetto sung over traditional jazz chords and structures. While he may find himself lost within the world that he built in Phainopepla, he is unrestricted by any musical expectation.
Life in Maps
Life in Maps
Life in Maps makes music that captures the complexity of turbulent times through an honest, sometimes simple lens on the world.
