Feeling a bit camera shy


Tree Heart Orchestra is a collective of musicians based around the artistic endeavors of Kasey Klimes and Jeremy Clark. To surrender the music to one particular genre or another would be difficult, though the songs tend to revolve around 'indie pop' in one form or another. Influences include The Microphones, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sufjan Stevens, Animal Collective and Sigur Ros.
We began as a strange project in a humble basement studio, from which a DIY spirit was born that continues to take an apparent place within our sound. Beginning in a recording environment allowed us an inherent freedom of instrumentation and layering of various sounds. When we began to play live, our shows quickly became a challenge to maintain that freedom. A multitude of non-traditional instruments are used; ukuleles, accordions, circuit-bent casios, banjos, melodicas, harmochords, trumpets, bowed-guitars, bells and various percussion. We’ve organized choirs and string sections, and when necessary formed a band of more traditional rock musicians as well.
Though intimate, our live shows often border on performance art, from the use of cell phones as microphones to tribal percussion breakdowns to a dozen or more people wandering the stage blowing bubbles. More than a band, Tree Heart Orchestra is a community sonic art project.
