Damian Mulinix of the Penny Collection Recordings is made up of me and other me's, plus some assorted friends and neighbors, including Preacher House Blues (aka Eric Ellis). In the past I've been fortunate to play with such fine musicians as Baldo Pulido, Ben Harwood, Zack Freiwald and Beth, Vinessa and McKenzie.
It sounds something like guitars ascending away with the help of wind storms, electric piano, percussion toys, bass, lap steel, harp, kids keyboards, green tambourines, hand claps, runaway choirs, phonograph, harmonium, air organs, fingers snapping, banjo bowing, pan lids crashing. Some singing is obviously involved.
Damian Mulinix of the Penny Collection Recordings can be found lost on the beach, up in the attic, at your favorite candy store or at: www.damianmulinix.com
Penny Collection Recordings started out as me recording stuff at home and has turned into a collection of devices and people to form a home studio of sorts and a group of like-minded friends who like to make music. In the months and hopefully years to come, this collective will be responsible for the creation, capturing and distribution of recorded materials by both local musicians and friends from around, both by themselves and as a whole.New album availableThe new full-length album from Damian Mulinix, titled "Honey, Time and Winner," is now available for purchase from Penny Collection Recordings through www.damianmulinix.com, as well as at live shows. The album, which is 11 tracks and 35 minutes long, sells for $10. If you order from the site the shipping is free.
The paper folding case was designed by Damian and features art by his grandmother of him as a boy, and was inspiration for one of the songs. Each case is also put together by Damian's own two hands, with the help of rulers, scissors and glue, a real collector!
