Jacob Bannon gallery show announced
Official press release: Multi-faceted artist Jacob Bannon will have original work from his Dunedevil project on display, as well as limited prints from the project, from June 13th-30th at the Mingo Gallery on the North Shore of Massachusetts. There will also be be books and the Wear Your Wounds companion album of the same name available for purchase at the gallery. For one week J. Bannon resided in the C-Scape Dune Shack (formerly known as the Cohen Shack) within the Peaked Hill Bars National Register Historical District in Provincetown, Massachusetts. This primitive environment inspired an outpouring of abstract mixed media work, photography, and music. The visual material from the experience is presented as Dunedevil, a nearly 300 page "smyth sewn" art book with a forward by acclaimed artist Thomas Hooper. Each day, the skeleton of a song was also recorded using a portable recording device powered by a Goal Zero solar power setup. The sounds were captured through an Apogee Duet using a Critter & Guitari mini piano, Martin Jr. guitar, assorted effects pedals, and a Shure SM7B microphone. Mike Mckenzie graciously played additional guitar on "Be Still My Heart" at a later date. All songs were then refined and mixed during the winter of 2016, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. These recordings are presented as Dunedevil, an experimental album from Wear Your Wounds.
