Since the age of 17, Houston-born Daniel Hipólito has been capturing, fragmenting, and reconfiguring his life experiences as Smokey Emery. Hipólito has become a well-established fixture amongst many experimental and electro-acoustic music circles by releasing a myriad of dense ambient works comprised of dismantled field recordings, reinvented through tape manipulation. Though moving transiently between cities for much of his adult-life, Hipólito perpetually equips himself with a recording device to connect his geographically disparate chapters of life into meaningful vignettes of self-reflective audio-journalism. Through this medium, Smokey Emery depicts a catalog of human conditions from multiple viewpoints and chronologies, allowing each composition to coalesce into a greater framework of substantive contextual meaning and expression.
Standard Legal is the project of songwriter Andrew Siegel.
Free! Plus coffee, beer, wine, and books!
