Colortones Mixtape #004

We made a playlist for Herman Miller last month, and decided to turn it into a (long overdue!) Colortones episode inspired by an Eames color palette. We also answered some questions about how music influences our work, and took some photos of our stu [...]

Colortones Mixtape #003

Admittedly, this is one of my darker, more fragile mixes, but despite the description, it's mostly hopeful, weaving in a narrative of a kind of surrealistic dream state in which you might awake feeling a little closer to finding your answer, whatever [...]

Colortones Mixtape #001
