On March 3rd, 2018, I was hospitalized with flu-like symptoms and a searing headache.

After nearly 2 weeks of intense hallucinations, pain and non-stop testing, I was diagnosed with viral encephalitis. A potentially deadly illness that was attacking my brain and spine. The injury to my brain threw my mind into chaos. I misremembered things, memories and events played out in a jumbled, non-linear order. I heard and saw things that weren’t there. By the time the hallucinations stopped, I was thoroughly terrified. During that time, I had also lost the ability to walk.

Facing a long and slow rehabilitation, I was discharged from the hospital and forced to temporarily move back into the house that I grew up in. For months, my mother and my partner Lissa fed me, bathed me, helped me dress and took me to the seemingly endless number of follow-up doctor’s appointments.

During this time, I spent a lot of time just hanging out, reminiscing with friends, family and neighbors who would come and visit. I also spent a significant amount of time digging around in my Mom’s basement, unearthing a ton of old records, books, beat tapes and magazines from my youth.

While I was still wheelchair bound, I began working on Memorabilia, a remix tape of memory and nostalgia. I took vocals from Radiohead, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Beastie Boys, Brandy and more, crafting new music around them and creating my own trippy, alternate remix versions of songs that I love.

Accompanying Memorabilia is a short film version directed by New Orleans-based artist Wino Willy. Sourced from hundreds of hours of Youtube clips, commercials, rare music videos, interviews and more, I’ve been describing Memorabilia’s film component as “a sample film, completed composed out of previously existing visual content. Structurally, its kinda like watching Yo MTV Raps on acid”

Memorabilia Now available on Bandcamp.
The Memorabilia film is now available on Youtube.
