Ordinal (SW/NE)

"Miljohn Ruperto: Geomancies" opens this weekend at The Roy and Edna Disney/ CalArts Theater in Los Angeles. The exhibition includes a film featuring sound design, original music and mix that I created at my studio Junior Birdman Audio.

The exhibition copy describes the film thusly:

"The centerpiece of the exhibition, Ordinal (SW/NE), 2017, is an experimental documentary created with filmmaker Rini Yun Keagy. The film traces the cultural and environmental influences of a soil-dwelling, pathogenic fungus, Coccidioides immitis, and its associated disease, valley fever, in California's Central Valley. Interweaving past, present and mythological time, the film draws upon historical and cultural references, including the plight of migrants during the Depression, the spread of the disease in recent years, contemporary theories of climate change, and the significance of the desert wind in ancient Assyria. In Ruperto and Keagy’s film, natural phenomena remain neutral, fleeing from any kind of judgment and avoiding binary oppositions of positive and negative, destruction and regeneration, life and death."

Music, Sound Design and Vocieover for Animation: Dad Movie

A whimsical animated take on early fatherhood from Flush Studios. My role: composer, sound editor, re-recording mixer. I also narrated the piece, providing voiceover performance and engineering.

The short premiered at 2016's Z-Fest, where it won the Specialty genre for animation, and went on to screen at Minnanimate 5 later in the year.
