In The Pines

‘In The Pines’ was originally recorded by legendary Blues musician Leadbelly and subsequently featured on the Nirvana – Unplugged album. Both of these recordings presented style and budgetary problems for the episode of Left Bank Pictures ‘Electric Dreams’. I re-recorded the track with guest vocalist and long-time collaborator Stefan Frank singing whilst I played drums, guitars and bass. I ended up with 3 very different mixes that I edited together to obtain the desired transition from a sparse ambience to a full-blooded roar.

original track – no dialogue
