Teeth Agency is a collaboration between producer Jesse Hackett (London) and artist Mariano Chavez (Chicago). Their private art collections and shared taste in macabre and striking artefacts became the foundation for this new project. They have referred to their first work 'Outhouse' as a Music-Book-Art-Object and now this concept is developing in to a series. Teeth Agency is slated to release 4 limited edition Music-Book-Art-Objects this year with further surprises in store.
Out House is the first installment by Teeth Agency. The book is a catalogue that visually translates the music via personal notes, drawings, computer renderings and a back and forth exchange between Hackett and Chavez. Some photos and sculptures are from the childhood home where Hackett grew up and served as a sketch for the songs and environment where the music was created. Chavez then filters the sound and image and visualizes the piece and a narrative that is described through these images. Together Hackett and Chavez work with the sound and image to create a unique poem that works together or as two separate parts. Jesse describes Out House as crypt rock / swamp sounds / underwater organ / family jams.
