"When I first sat down to write MANIFOLD, I had just been listening non-stop to the soundtrack to Joey Ciccoline's 88:88 that MAVS had done. Now, usually I write my own music to my stuff, but his music was so haunting, and so beautiful that I knew that he was the perfect choice for this short. It needed an emotional hook that only MAVS can deliver: A kind of wise nostalgia and sadness.
I asked… He said yes.
I believe that the music in a film can absolutely make or break it… MAVS music makes the film MANIFOLD. I'm excited for you all to hear his nuanced compositions for this film, and I know you'll enjoy them as much as I did." - Anthony Scott Burns, dir.

I found MAVS through his work on the PC game Brigador - and I have a new favorite. I had no idea he was in my home state of Tennessee, either! I guess it's not all cows and banjos, after all. Jam Taster
