VIDEO | Geraldine

Black Taffy (Donovan Jones) is a Dallas-based composer and performer whose current focus lies in pairing ambient music with large bass and percussion. The first born son of Pentecostal music ministers, Donovan grew up witnessing the power music has to induce trance and encourage spiritual awakening. Eventually drawing parallels between christianity, voodoo, and the occult, he left the former to immerse himself in the latter. Sometimes performing with only Vibraphone and cassette decks, he frequently employs the use of tape loops and other antiquated mediums to create pillowy worlds of wow and flutter.

Geraldine is the first single from the forthcoming “Elder Mantis" full-length (due Winter 2019), a therapy record which in Jones' opinion feature some of the most therapeutic instruments to sample and repurpose. The “meat and potatoes” of this album are harp, koto, and flute with a small side of piano and nylon-string guitar. The sampled phrases were extracted from Western/Eastern classical music - harvested exclusively from vinyl and cassette tape maintaining a concerted effort to leave the already-present wear and tear of the format while further degrading source material via the digital processing of outboard sampling instruments SP404/404SX and SP303
