Dave Ruder – It Happened

Digital only, released June 2013

This EP stems from a collaboration with choreographer Joanna Kotze on her 2013 piece it happened it has happened it is happening it will happen. Dave created music and sounds for the production, and as is bound to happen with any large collaboration, there was a lot of strong material left over afterwards. These cuts describe a particular state of mind in which Dave resided for a few months, and taken together they sketch out Dave’s reaction to Joanna’s amazing choreography. While only the final track presented here was used in the piece, this EP is completely inspired by the movement.

Dave Ruder played guitar, bass, clarinet, metalphone, glockenspiel, and keyboards. Skipping sound on last track from Joanna.
