10 Questions for Dan Deacon – Rats, Player Pianos & Theremins
One of our absolute favorite musicians, Dan Deacon did the music for "Theo Anthony’s Rat Film." The film, which uses the urban rat as a way to explore a deeper story of urbanization and segregation, is a unique blend of history, science and sci-fi, poetry and portraiture. And Deacon’s music, a unique blend of styles, genres and instruments is the perfect match for what Anthony was doing. In a Pitchfork review of Deacon’s album incredible album "America," Jess Harvell wrote, “As carefully constructed as the work of any highbrow electronic savant you’d care to name, Deacon’s music alone should clearly paint him as a smart dude, a thinker, and a craftsman.” Click through to read the interview, and check out his incredible video for a song we love called "When I Was Done Dying" after the Latest Posts section below.
