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

What a way to start the week with some of my favorite people!! @merenator @mattolincreative and @afewminertweaks - a planned “short meeting” about our ongoing series Played By Hausman turned into gameshow antics on camera! Kudos to Tim Miner for knowing more about Disney characters than any grown man should. We would have been so embarrassed without him. And to Matt Olin for being able to pull off some great impromptu vocals on some Disney classics. Charlotte is indeed creative! Last but not least, my new friend, @merenator - so much joy, love and inspiration packed into one human being it is almost overwhelming. @ryanfoundation @levinechildrens and @thesmartlab @groundcrew_sound #cltiscreative #charlotteiscreative

My love for my sons is beyond words. I was fortunate to have two young men who are also my best fiends. I am gonna miss this youngest dude when he rolls out to Montana State University to study film and photography in the Fall. I am thankful for all the time I have been able to spend with him, through falconry, soccer, travel and music. This weekend was incredible. Thanks to J. Cole and @dreamvillefest for bringing 40,000 people together in a park for a day of incredible music, peace and love. That moment when Cole asked 40k strangers to put their arms around each other and sway back and forth to his music will forever be burned in my brain. The future is now. #peace #hiphop #rap #dreamville #jcole @jidsv @earthgang @realcoleworld @scott_lazer @thesmartlab @elihausman @connorhausman

As I am trying to get my game happening with Ableton Live and the Push 2, (I am a Logic Pro guy) I have realized that making a simple beat every day might help me get my shit together. This is V1 made up of organic sound samples recorded by me. Kinda sounds like a junk yard. So, I think I’ll dub it “Junk Yard Dog”. #beats #producer #ableton #push2

American Advertising Awards Best In Video!! Scoring this project (with my buddy Dan Hood) for Tattoo Projects and Sheetz was one of the many highlights of 2018. This music is raw, visceral and yet still quite slick. I just love the way it is all over the place but still feels cohesive.

Another new film score release on iTunes, Spotify and beyond!! I was asked by EMMY winning Naka Productions to create a film score for their new documentary based around the Shoshone-Bannock tribes. When I brought up style they said, “we want you to do your thing!” (My favorite answer). I ended up building on a post rock (Sigur Ros, Radiohead) meets subtle hints of Hip-Hop vibe built around Native American flute, drums and vocals. One of the pieces features Multi-Grammy winning flautist Mary Youngblood on flute and vocals. Mary also added additional flute while additional percussion was provided by Jim Brock! Album art by Derek No-Sun Brown @no_sun mastering by Ross Wissbaum @wissbaum Look for the film as it makes the rounds at the film festivals before making its way to PBS. #charlotteiscreative
