Cover of To Wine & Cheese

From To Wine & Cheese

“This music was not originally intended for public release. This is a collection of songs recorded specifically for a two-month showing of my artwork in the fall of 2007, to be on continuous loop in the background at the gallery. As I produced the work for this one-time event, and with minimal budget, I never intended to do so with public release standards being involved. What this really means is that I regarded the project with a certain jubilant abandon and frequently did things like recording in noisy, ad-hoc environments; mixing in unbalanced rooms on unfamiliar speakers; and remaining generally agreeable to welcoming mistakes as part of the process. Add to this that the original DAT master tape is damaged and features permanent digital buzzes and noises in spots (some of them quite nice). I’ve left the songs in their original running order and did nothing to improve upon their sound quality. Of course, if you’re really interested in reliving the event as it was, I suppose playing the songs in order at very low volume in a room full of people enjoying some wine and cheese might do the trick. Maybe open a window too.” - Don Himlin, November 2009
