About this project

PASTOR/AL is a collaboration between a musician (Graham Hill / Roman Ruins) and a visual artist (Hunter Mack) with aspirations of producing a vinyl record and an archival art print. The basic premise is as follows: Hunter produces a painting and gives it to Graham, Graham crafts a song based on the painting and gives it to Hunter, Hunter creates a painting based on the new song - then the process repeats itself. It's an artistic version of the childhood game "Telephone"!

The money raised will be used to produce:
+ A limited pressing of a 7" record on colored vinyl using songs culled from the collaboration, packaged beautifully using imagery from the resultant paintings. All songs created but not on the vinyl will be included as MP3's.
+ A collection of paintings on birch panels (measuring 18" x 18" x 2.5"). The paintings will be shown at an art show in Oakland (California) on May 1st, 2010. Location and details TBA.
+ A limited edition archival giclée print of one of the paintings

Who we are:
+ Graham Hill is a musician who records under the name Roman Ruins. He also plays drums for a variety of bands including Beach House and The Papercuts. You can listen to his music here.
+ Hunter Mack is a visual artist who uses paintings, drawings, and sculpture to explore the relationship between order and disorder. You can see his portfolio here.

Other Odds & Ends:
+ As the project progresses, we'll provide exclusive updates to our backers including music, photographs, and video detailing the evolution of the collaboration.
+ We kindly ask international backers to add $5 to their pledge in order to cover additional mailing costs.
+ If the project reaches the funding goal and you pledged the reward amount to get an original painting, the first pledge will get first choice of the paintings (and so on). We will be able to contact these folks after the project deadline (before the public show, so you'll be able to reserve the painting of your choice).

Thanks to everyone for the support, we're excited about the opportunity to undertake a collaboration like this. We know you'll love the results!
