Jamie Tognazzini



Jamie rolled over and heard the birds- ever since,  it’s like everything is half underwater.  This artifact is about a life altering change in perception, and a fluid, slow suspension in that new isolated reality.  

Jamie recorded the music using most of the instruments in the apartment and a hand-me-down laptop.

Peek through a hole in the floor of an imaginary upstairs neighbour!  Grab your kaleidoscope and dream your own Busby Berkeley depression-era fantasy!
