about

"Game Of Phones" is an album of songs, manipulated field recordings, and instrumental pieces.

This album was entirely recorded with a cell phone. It is an experimental exploration of the evolving role of technology in the creation of art, and a meditation on the relevance of the singer-songwriter archetype.

In the early part of the last century, recordings were made by scratching lines into cylinders and dragging needles through a disc made from a polymer. Now, we live in an era when a good percentage of the people on the earth walk around with infinitely more sophisticated devices in their pockets. This release questions the modern definition of "lo-fi".
