Rimbaud Hattie: Rimbaud Hattie

March 5, 2020

Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Description Rimbaud Hattie is an ensemble organized by Douglas Bressler specifically to participate in Never Records featuring John Kelly, Heather Litteer, Julie Hair, and Doug Bressler. All were friends with Brian Butterick aka Hattie Hathaway, a scion of East Village performance art, who passed away in 2019. Rimbaud Hattie was their way of mourning their dead friend. Hattie, Doug, Julie, and David Wojnarowicz were in the band Three Teens Kill 4. Hattie also acted as one of the main models in David Wojnarowicz's now famous series Rimbaud In New York. Rimbaud Hattie performed a mini opera that features a conversation between Hattie and David. There was a sense of catharsis in this imaginative tribute and I feel privileged to have witnessed it. For their session I mixed each section independently to create a specific feel for each component. I especially love Julie’s synth sounds as well as the chemistry between Heather and John. All of the beautiful songs were written by Doug.
