Lean Year | Robert Donne

Lean Year: is Virginia-based singer Emilie Rex and filmmaker/musician Rick Alverson. Together the two co-wrote the minimalist folk gem over the course of a year at their home in Richmond. They note Karen Dalton, Brian Eno, Fred Neil as their influences and examine their experiences in the aspirational worlds of the occult, Catechism education, the cloistered world of figure skating, hierarchical academia and the parasitic culture of the film industry throughout a series of powerfully restrained and meticulously crafted vignettes.

Robert Donne: is a musician and film composer from Richmond, VA. He has recorded works with a variety of groups and individuals including Labradford (Kranky), Aix Em Klemm (Kranky), Spokane (Jagjaguwar), Gregor Samsa, Cristal (Flingco Sound System, Entr'acte), Pan.American (Kranky), Stephen Vitiello, and most recently Anjou (Kranky). His work as a composer includes Rick Alverson's Entertainment, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and New Jerusalem (2011 Film Festival Rotterdam), as well as Daniel Carbone's Hide Your Smiling Faces (2013 Berlinale).
