Ethan Woods, Down The Blue Dog's Tongue
American, b. 1989, playing from Brooklyn, NY, USA
Ethan Woods is a singer, composer, and electronic musician from Anchorage, AK. Weird is the simplest way to describe the quality of his work, ranging from atonal piano pieces, stream-of-conscious improvisations for electronics and voice, and twisted songs for guitar and voice. He is presently located in Red Hook, Brooklyn, where he works on his podcast, Pings From The Abyss, as well as his two bands, the five-piece vocal group Anawan and the three-piece experimental rockers Rokenri.

Thoughts on Telephone process
The process was intuitive for me. I received a collage that looked like a dog with a river and a boat in its mouth, so I tried to respond as quickly as I could to that imagery. The resulting piece contained samples of dogs whining, recordings of laughter, a strange wooshing sound I still cannot explain, guitar, a recording of a person saying ‚Äúking‚Äù through an old speaker, and many other small sounds that would bubble up and disappear.
