Wow, this video was hard to make after Jory’s sudden unexpected passing this week. We left the footage kind of “raw” so you can get a sense of what it was like to spend time with Jory in his studio in Fairfax, California. We’ve cut out a lot of the voice session we sat in on, but big thanks to Erik Braa for being a good sport about having us there. Recorded in March 2015.
Jory was a long-time friend, and we’ll miss him very much. Really glad he got a chance to come to the Beep premiere and see some of this footage himself.
