The
Conservatory
FORM Music Festival
Arcosanti, AZ
May 2019
Open yet encompassing, this sculptural installation was comprised of flared columns of fabric with internally-lit fiberglass figureheads, illuminating the canyon at Form Music Festival Arcosanti, AZ in 2017. The sculptures created an implied boundary for participants to gather in front of the stage in the valley beneath the Arcosanti architecture. Inspired by the sculptural motifs of Arcosanti’s architect, Paolo Soleri, eight elegantly curved columns uphold ethereal translucent geometric forms composed of a hemisphere conjoined to a hemicube, each in a different state of deconstruction. When arranged together, the glowing pillars integrate the sky and the landscape to the immediate environment.

Half Waif

December, 2019
Half Waif (Nandi Rose) was joined by engineer Zubin Hensler for two weeks in late 2019 to work on what would become the follow up to The Caretaker. The genesis of this residency was initially rooted in recording an EP of piano renditions of older Half Waif material, but the concept quickly blossomed into an entirely new album centered around the Steinway at Pulp.

Engineers

Winston Goertz-Giffen

Winston has been making music and engineering sound since childhood. Recording mixtapes from the radio as a second grader, he discovered multi-tracking by using two boomboxes. He started out engineering punk bands in warehouses in Oakland and over the last 17 years has honed his craft across professional studios in the Bay Area. His musical projects include Saything, Ted the block, and a yet unnamed modular synth project. He loves building modular synths.

Danny Clifton

Danny cut his teeth in audio engineering as a multi-instrumentalist songwriter, producer, and artist in his own right. His musical projects include Jane Jane Pollock, Danny, and Room Thirteen. Having spent the last 6 years audio engineering live events in New Orleans and as a technical director for live productions across the southeast, he joined the Pulp team as a full-time studio engineer in Gainesville in April 2019.

Davis Hart

Davis has been turning knobs in his father's analog home studio since childhood. In his early teenage years he spent time recording his projects and those of local bands to tape and digital formats leading him to work in a commercial studio out of high school. Hart’s years doing live sound and engineering allows for technical insight, but from his perspective, Davis’ real prowess is in his ears. He prides himself on being a keen listener and loves to offer an alternative perspective to artists. No stranger to experimentation, Davis strongly believes that recording bands is more art than science.

HL Nelly

Nelly has been making music since she could walk. A multi-instrumentalist songwriter and producer behind post-punk projects such as Naked Lights, Surplus 1980, and most recently Smiley, she started her professional engineering career in Oakland after graduating with a degree in Sound Arts from SAE’s Expression College in the Bay Area. She loves getting drum sounds, recording to tape, and her dog Bogner (named after Ursula Bogner, minimal analog synth legend of the 1960’s).
