Red Rider’s Lament

website

Jeremy Bessoff’s experimental stop motion animation western.

Featuring music by Joshua Dumas, Keith Kusterer, Tom McGettrick, Tom Santiago, and Sally Timms.

Watch the film!

The tragic-comic “Red Rider’s Lament” employs vintage plastic cowboys and construction paper sets to explore the enactment of masculinity in the Old West. The Rider enters the fold just as the West’s dust is settling. His haphazard wanderings cause him to confront manifest destiny and the changes it renders to the landscape and its inhabitants.

Townline Road

Jason Eckerson and Anika Balaconis and I met up at Mark Temelko and Tina Post’s farm in upstate New York. We set up a tent and built a make-shift music space. We spent our days working outside and in the evenings we played songs and recorded them. Anika made some brushes for the drums out of pine needles, we had a big bonfire, we sang with cicadas and crickets and birds.
