TREE-SIT The Art of Resistance soundtrack
Music is a strong part of the culture in the forest defense movement. One fire side hero is Casey Neil, whose songs stomp on the corporations and inspire people to dance the night away. We are proud to have him on the sound track.

Sean Andrews - AKA Ranking Sean.

Whilst watching hours of raw footage, Sean Andrews from London, England produced many dynamic drum'n' bass tracks for the long-awaited, feature length, documentary TREE SIT: THE ART OF RESISTANCE. By immersing himself in the images, he was able to translate these stories into music. This will be Sean's third collaboration with us as composer & performer: In 1999 Sean Andrews scored the music for “Fire in The Eyes” after he himself had experienced rough and racist treatment from the British police. His personal experience inspired the highly charged, dark, and emotional music that is woven into the award winning documentary Fire in the Eyes. Sean, who has produced bands, scored music for films in the UK, performed in many live acts.

Jim Page
is a folk singer known well in activist circles and beyond as a master song writer and story teller. After David Gypsy Chain was killed by a tree felled by a Pacific Lumber Company logger, Jim wrote the story into the song," Gypsy". We will also be hearing his song Butterfly on the sound track.

Another incredibly talented musician we have featured in TREE SIT is the infamous Ned Mudd. Ned is also a successful environmental lawyer and earth defender!

Making this movie, we discovered “Black Fire”, a Navajo Punk band from Big Mountain Arizona. They came out to California and played two benefit concerts for TREE SIT. Their music tells the raw truth about the merciless corporations in Indian Country. Black fire will have a new CD out this May.

Another creative group is Land of the Blind, originally from Portland OR. After hearing their unique music and the haunting voice of Cyoakha, we had to use them in the movie. Together, we produced a muliti media benefit event for Tree -sit. Julia Butterfly, still living in the LUNA tree-sit, read her poems to their music. This was also our first live internet webcast, simultaneously heard on local radio station KMUD {Garberville}. We are excited to have such brilliant musical allies.

Singer and multi-instrumentalist, Rebecca Moore, adds a variety of musical delights to our soundtrack. Her first album debuts on the Knitting Factory label this year.

Tourmaline Music & Forest Floor
