We intend to add more homemade videos over time. For now, here is a selection of videos that were made before and during the production of the album. They might not sound anything like what is on the album. Feel free to subscribe to our Youtube channel.
Our promotional video — a homage to those compilation TV commercials from the 1980s and 1990s.
Our interpretation of the ending of Pynchon’s masterpiece Gravity’s Rainbow.
Middletown New York
“Middletown New York” is from Thomas Pynchon’s 2013 novel Bleeding Edge. The footage was shot during the recording sessions at the Terrarium in Minneapolis.
Hymn and Glee
On the occasion of Thomas Pynchon’s 80th birthday on May 8th, 2017, a birthday party (in absentia of Pynchon, needless to say) was organized at Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Among shuffling, drinking, suspended bananas, and a birthday cake with a marzipan V-2 rocket, Tyler Burba performed a number of the tunes that were later developed into proper arrangements for this album. He also performed two of the solo pieces here, “Hymn” and “Glee” from The Crying of Lot 49.
