Critically-acclaimed modern string quartet ETHEL recently teamed up with Jesse to record the audio portion of their multimedia project "Documerica." Based on the Environmental Protection Agency's 1970s Project Documerica, the project takes images from this massive collection of photographs and combines them into a visual projection with new compositions inspired by these images. Originally conceived as a live multimedia performance, the project continues to grow and evolve. Pictured here is the quartet and recording team after a successful week of recording!
