CAT BIRD COYOTE follows the disorientation of laboratory animals who flee their captors only to face each other in the wild. It is part of a media installation of music, film and monologues and is the first of a series of short films that examine animal behavior in humans and vice-versa. The next one is called KITTY DECIDES. With animation by Tahnee Gehm and found sounds transformed into music by producer David Poe, it is also the official music video for the song “Breathe My Breath” from the forthcoming album, GIRLS GET COLD.
CAT BIRD COYOTE has appeared in seven film festivals and won Best Animation in the Big Apple Film Festival and Los Angeles Independent Film Festival. In December 2015 & January 2016, CAT BIRD COYOTE will be screened on every Virgin America flight in the United States and Mexico as part of the Boing Boing channel. catbirdcoyote.com
Amy Raasch is a playwright, actor and musician whose forthcoming media installation GIRLS GET COLD is a mash-up of quirky electronic pop, film and theatrical storytelling that examines animal behavior in humans and vice-versa.
Emerging from soundscapes built from glacial MIDI drum tracks, dirty electric guitar, muted piano and classical flute, lovelorn animals and deviant humans search for connection. A honey-crazed bear falls for the queen bee who blinds him. A scientist installs a microchip in the throat of a bird and plays it like a piano. A secretary wonders how someone she doesn’t want to kiss can still be good kisser, as the howls of coyotes that dog her heels morph into song.
