Carta Moena 12|69
At 18 years old, I set out to become a photographer, but fate deemed I would spend the greater part of my professional life working as a musician and composer with Au Revoir Simone, a band I founded in the early aughts along with Annie Hart and Erica Forster in Brooklyn, New York. My career in music granted me the wings to travel the world and soak up its rich influences. During this same period of time, I also became fascinated by the field of tropical ecology and enrolled at Columbia University to obtain a BS in Environmental Biology. The simultaneous pursuit of both music and science split me in unexpected ways – while my body was either on stage or racing through Europe in a van to get to the next venue in time, my mind was often in the tropics. Musical notes and fragrance notes are one in the same, meditative tools that allow me to dive within and access the psychic space of universal connection. Like a traveler in a foreign land, I seek to retrieve a souvenir from that space – a song, a drawing, and now, perfume with Carter Moena 12|69. Both tell the story of where I’ve been, established at first with a beat and layered with textures and meaning. Both want a beginning, a climactic middle, and an end to be worth telling..
