Wild Human, music score: Patrick Breiner by David Bernabo

Resting somewhere between documentary, tone poem, and podcast, the film Wild Human discusses how wilderness has been replaced by representations of nature and the wild. 

Throughout the film, much of the music is presented as live, improvised solo performances, filmed in areas that blur nature and city. Below is an unedited take from Patrick Breiner, performing an improvised piece on clarinet.

How Things Are Made: Episode 8 by David Bernabo

Brian Riordan, Matt Aelmore, and myself, the trio that is How Things Are Made, changed locations for this one. In Brian's basement, we added Rhodes electric piano and bass to our usual mix of trumpet and processing. We would totally have a record deal with this one if it was 40 years ago.
