KITTY DECIDES, a web installation to benefit animal rescue, coming Summer 2016 

KITTY DECIDES, a web installation to benefit animal rescue, pounces Summer 2016. 

Set to the beat of an electro-pop earworm produced by veteran songsmith David Poe, KITTY DECIDES features Amy as a Julie Newmar-inspired Catwoman, a clowder of Internet-famous cats, a rock band of seven year-old girls, and a cat who watches it all on TV. Vasquez Rocks, iconic setting for classic Star Trek eps, among many others, serves as the stunning backdrop for our hero cat's bubblegum pink trailer. 

When it comes to what kitty wants and when kitty wants it, one thing is clear: you do not decide: KITTY DECIDES! 100% of proceeds benefit animal rescue.

PASTE Magazine Feature 

CAT BIRD COYOTE was recently featured in Paste Magazine:

"Playwright, actor and musician Amy Raasch's forthcoming media installation GIRLS GET COLD is a mash-up of quirky electronic pop, film and theatrical storytelling that examines animal behavior in humans and vice-versa. Emerging from soundscapes built from glacial MIDI drum tracks, dirty electric guitar, muted piano and classical flute, lovelorn animals and deviant humans search for connection. A honey-crazed bear falls for the queen bee who blinds him. A scientist installs a microchip in the throat of a bird and plays it like a piano. A secretary wonders how someone she doesn’t want to kiss can still be good kisser, as the howls of coyotes that dog her heels morph into song.What becomes of touch in the age of the touch screen? Through both humorous and ominous vignettes, Raasch asks how we reckon with our primal urges in the age of technology."

"Amy Raasch is a playwright, actor and musician whose forthcoming media installation GIRLS GET COLD is a mash-up of quirky electronic pop, film and theatrical storytelling that examines animal behavior in humans and vice-versa. She recently released an animated video for "Cat Bird Coyote", which follows the disorientation of laboratory animals who flee their captors only to face each other in the wild. Watch the video below! 

Emerging from soundscapes built from glacial MIDI drum tracks, dirty electric guitar, muted piano and classical flute, lovelorn animals and deviant humans search for connection. A honey-crazed bear falls for the queen bee who blinds him. A scientist installs a microchip in the throat of a bird and plays it like a piano. A secretary wonders how someone she doesn't want to kiss can still be good kisser, as the howls of coyotes that dog her heels morph into song. 

"Cat Bird Coyote" is part of a media installation of music, film and monologues and is the first of a series of short films that examine animal behavior in humans and vice-versa. The next one is called KITTY DECIDES. With animation by Tahnee Gehm and found sounds transformed into music by producer David Poe, it is also the official music video for the song "Breathe My Breath" from the forthcoming album, GIRLS GET COLD. 

"Cat Bird Coyote" has appeared in seven film festivals and won Best Animation in the Big Apple Film Festival and Los Angeles Independent Film Festival. In December 2015 & January 2016, "Cat Bird Coyote" will be screened on every Virgin America flight in the United States and Mexico as part of the Boing Boing channel.

No Depression Magazine Feature 

CAT BIRD COYOTE featured in No Depression magazine!:

"Amy Raasch is not your typical musician. Wearing many hats which also include playwright and actress, Raasch takes on a brilliant approach with her new video for "Cat Bird Coyote." The piece is an interesting work of art that has a surprise around each and every corner. Following the flow of her enchanting voice, Raasch brings in elements of a dark folk sound to the song, which will stun and intrigue you. The video highlights the song "Breathe My Breath," which is from Amy's forthcoming record, Girls Get Cold. 

The animation of the video shows a vivid story, which was created by Tahnee Gehm; truly a piece of art. "Cat Bird Coyote" features monologues that are told from the perspective of the animals, which will ulimately become a live media installation. One of the most fascinating elements of Raasch's music is the storytelling element that she weaves throughtout, leaving no stone unturned. Her haunting voice is intricatately placed as she sings every note with perfection. Songwriting definitely proves to be a strength for Raasch as every  word sung is thoughtfully placed within the song. If "Breathe My Breath," is just the beginning of what Amy Raasch has to offer on Girls Get Cold, consider me a fan.
