One of my hero’s. One of the great voices to walk this earth. So glad I got to see him live at The Brewery in Raleigh, and more so that I got to spend a little time talking life and music with him. He was as gracious as he was gifted. We lost him not long after... 22 years ago today. One of our brightest lights went out. #jeffbuckley

Here we have the newest Played By Hausman! For this one, @cltiscreative had me head over to one of their favorite printers, Boingo Graphics! Boingo has one of the coolest print shops in the area and they knew this was going to be a great fit for this video series. Although Boingo has some the most advanced printing technology around, Cinematographer Ben Premeaux could not pull his camera away from all the vintage/historic print machines that they still maintain. The visuals, with all the older moving parts, are what make this video come alive! Chosen for the soloist for this piece is CPCC Professor of Music Matt Postle on Trumpet. ALL other “instruments" in this composition are sounds from the Boingo Graphics shop. Composed and performed by Jason Hausman at Hot Sakē Cinematography by Ben Premeaux Edited by Maverick Floyd Mixed at Groundcrew Sound Feat Artist: Matt Postle @pattmostle (CPCC Professor of Music) - Trumpet Just a few of the sounds used: Stitchers Shuffled Paper Stacks Warning Buzzer (turned into a bass synth sound) Gears Levers Paper Cutter And so much more @afewminertweaks @mattolincreative @boingographics @thesmartlab @sonic_samurai @groundcrew_sound @mavfloedits
