RECORDING Dave Longstreth
MASTERING John Golden
     
 
The Getty Address is an album-length narrative inspired by Aztec mythology, the Eagles, and the 9/11 aftermath. It is a sprawling, layered glitch opera about Don Henley, leader of the aforementioned country/soft-rock group, and it was recorded over the course of almost two years, in three different states, with more than twenty-five people. Dave Longstreth, the principal Dirty Projector, wrote and recorded arrangements for wind septet, women’s choir, and cello octet, digitally deconstructed them, and then sang over the reconstituted parts in order to make these songs. Many of he album's often-gibberish lyrics stem from Longstreth’s first album, "The Graceful Fallen Mango", and the Eagles’ "Greatest Hits Volume I".
