Meaghanne McBride & Ben Spizuco


We each made a collage-style sampling track using various recordings. We used audio from the movie “Emperor Tomato Ketchup,” a clip of a shamisen player  Meaghanne encountered in Japan, Meaghanne’s koto playing “Sakura Sakura”, Ben’s improving on guitar, and others! In coming up with this project, we discussed ideas like surrealism and combining Japanese traditional music and American rock aesthetics, as well as our individual styles of composition and playing. Our tracks are a cool way of hearing how two people who have very different styles use the same puzzle pieces to make something!
