Oxyana Soundtrack

– Music Mastering & Mixing –

Recorded and mixed by Evan P. Donahue (with director Sean Dunne) at Jonny Fritz’ house in Nashville (aka ‘The Fritz Carlton”) – the soundtrack to Oxyana is made up of performances by the Jonny Fritz band, featuring Deer Tick frontman John McCauley on guitar (‘Overture’) and vocals (‘Willow Garden’).

For both the film itself and the soundtrack, I handled mastering the tracks for release. The soundtrack features unedited versions and adds 3 bonus songs from the sessions, not heard in the film – first, an instrumental (edited & mixed by me) called ‘Cat Funeral’, second is a cover of Merle Haggard’s ‘Silver Wings’ performed by Josh Hedley, and last – a cover of the surf-rock classic ‘Sleepwalk’ performed by John McCauley.

Oxyana

-Post Production Sound Editing, Design & Mix-

Sean Dunne’s debut feature-length documentary, “Oxyana” is an intimate portrait of a small West Virginian town that has been fighting a losing battle with addiction to prescription pills.

“Oxyana” was selected to premiere in the World Documentary competition at the 2013 TriBeCa Film Festival on April 19th, 2013. It went on to win the prize for Best New Documentary Director as well as a Special Jury Mention for Best Documentary.

It has since aired (in edited form) on the PBS show ‘America Reframed’

The full, unedited film can be watched (for free) over at the Very Ape website.
