Keith Kenniff

(and Miranda July)

Keith Kenniff writes music for movies (among these Miranda July’s “me and You and Everyone we know“)
He is also a major mix-master making sample laws obviously redundant in all their stiffling idiocracy. Listen to this mix and tell me if it wasn’t worth it. Then go and seek out each individual composer and live their bodies of work.

Miranda July’s Handy Tip

delicate weird

Miranda July: deleted scene from her 2nd full-feature movie, “The Future”, individually titled “Tips for the easily distracted”.

I love this director. Her quirky mind makes me feel alive in a world of … yes, distractions, seeing things I forgot can be seen.

Do find Me you and everyone we know (2005) and The Future(2011), if you in any way react positively to the above excerpt.
