Is there any chance that Sufjan will get around to releasing the Crooked River documentary? Is there even a single human being that has it?
It’s Kaleo La Belle’s movie, so it’s not up to him to release. There was some talk about it being released around 2010-2011, but Sufjan expressed in an interview (I can’t find it; I think it was taken down) that he’d rather not have it released. After that, the trailer that Kaleo’s production company put up on youtube was made private. So, it’s probably not going to see the light of day. But we’ll always have these glorious five minutes.

About This Program Rapper Serengeti, composer/producer Son Lux and singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens offer listeners “an odd mix of personalities and musical styles [resulting in] something quite beautiful” (The Consequence of Sound). Inspired by the work of contemporary visual artist Jim Hodges, the trio will release its sophomore recording in conjunction with the first comprehensive survey of Hodges’ work in the U.S., opening at the Walker Art Center February 2014. The exhibition will feature the new music, with further details to be announced fall 2013.

“Come down/up/over/out to Rockwood and hear us premiere brand new music by Timo Andres, Marcos Balter, Mark Dancigers and Sufjan Stevens as well as play some less-new-but-still-pretty-new works by Nico Muhly and Andrew Norman.”
From the last couple of posts, it seems like we’re going backwards in time. Since things are a little quiet now after the Planetarium, I thought I’d post stuff from a few years back. It might be interesting to those who started listening to him recently?
