Watch The Junction: An animated series of creative encounters.
Stories of musical magnetism – how unique musical collaborations came to be. Animated short films tell the funny and often unexpected stories of artists, how they met, and the music they created together.
Born entertainers rarely come as cerebral as Samuel T. Herring of Future Islands. The charismatic singer’s skill at getting into his own zone proved crucial for writing songs together in the studio with Toronto four-piece BadBadNotGood. The band’s freeform, jam-based approach to making melodies jelled well with Herring’s brainy writing process. Animator Kyle Mowat brilliantly captures the old school, back-to-basics nature of the collaboration with his playful juxtapositions of form and style.
