The New House (2005) was inspired by and is a response to the music of Ali Farke Toure. Each track, while lacking the technical abilities of Toure, still strives after his musical essence: joy, melody, and rhythms that at first seem simple but reveal layers of complexity after multiple listenings. The New House was made while in residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts in California, using toy and junk instruments available at the time.
