This event is all ages

At the beginning of November, we put out a call to KUT listeners, inviting them to send us some of their favorite Austin sounds. We received nearly 100 great submissions—ranging from bats under the Congress bridge to tamale making to rowing on Lady Bird Lake—and we've passed them along to seven local musical groups, The musicians have just two weeks to compose original songs that incorporate the city sounds, and these pieces will debut at a unique live performance event on Sunday, December 16th at the ND (www.ndvenue.com). Keep an eye on http://kut.org/austin-remixed/ for more details.

I woke first after dreaming of parachuting from the clouds and wandered out the screen door. tall tall grass, a small red barn. i gathered dried leaves and returned to the house, the others had woken. we set up our instruments and stood in a circle in the living room, surrounded by old couches and microphones. on the east wall a painting of a horse. golden hair, soft green grass. we sang to her and to the cicadas, and to each other.

it is a constant struggle, perhaps, to keep the confusing and complicated at bay and the simple and pure close at heart. but a good and noble fight it must be to try, i think. i love playing music with my band. it is always joyful, always pure, and i wanted to capture this simply and truthfully. so past the roadside bars where men in plaid shirts scuff and haw, and through the tall oaks that line the straight texas roads the four of us gathered: gina dvorak, andrew bergmann, lauren mcmurray and myself. we invited our good friend stephen orsak to join us and record the event. we chose a sunday in june while the sun was high and the grass was just beginning to bend with dust.

halletts is a collection of these songs. they are live, simple and untouched, the way they were born. they are stories of rain and snow and fields and the birds that dip through them.

About
"Simultaneously meticulous and simple, emotive and honest, Roger Sellers combines folk and subtle electro to make a vivid masterpiece." -Matthew Latessa, Tri-State Indie
Biography
The artistic style of Roger Sellers is widely accessible. Imagine folk-dance-americana-electric-symphonic fusion, where Philip Glass, Sufjan Stevens, and Joanna Newson all groove to late night ambient house music in George Martin's livingroom.

Roger Sellers paints vivid aural landscapes where his multiple-layered instrumentation pierces through the terrain like musicological formations, as they compile higher and higher. Compelled by the splendor projected, you, the listener climbs to the top of Roger's finely crafted mountain, where you are met by the enlightened composer. Just as you catch your breath, Roger takes your hand and shows you his panoramic view; at that moment you absorb the deepest beauty that inherently waits within Roger Sellers' profound concept.

Instruments are easy in his hands, and he literally plays them all. Guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, bells, organ, piano, drums. From one-man acts, to a full band, Roger Sellers' live performances sweep his audiences clean from external focus- until the attention is solely paid to him. Similarly, in the studio, Sellers plays the engineer, producer, director, composer, and lyricist.

With two self-produced albums of professional quality under his belt at the young age of 24, Roger Sellers' songs attest to the erudition of his musical training and confidence as a master of recording. The newest release, Moments (2011), is out and available, as well as his first album, Roger Sellers (2010).
