Video: Butterfly emerges from Chrysalis to “Wild Ride” by Chonk

January 10, 2017

Shady Pines Media made a video to “Wild Ride,” a trippy tune I recorded using some samples from a relaxation cassette, an old drum kit, some bongos and a synth. Shady Pines Media is Callie, Kamran, and Brian (Chonk)’s video and audio production group in Portland, OR.
