They say to draw from your surroundings, so, from the vaguely Hothian remains of what used to be Halifax, I give you CMGcast 151. Inspired by Nicolas Jaar’s re-scoring of 1969 Armenian avant-garde film The Color of Pomegranates, a couple sections of which you’ll hear below, I spent these past few months re-scoring another foreign film—one a little more relevant to those of us on the east coast screaming “NO, FUCK YOU at the snowdrifts that ate our homes and desire to carry on: Apocalypse Snow II.

Just hit mute on the video, turn on the auto-replay, start the podcast when the film hits 0:03, and prepare to be blown away by synergy and snow-rafting:
