T. Hardy Morris is honored to have R.E.M. debut the latest video from the “Audition Tapes From Places in Peril” series on their site R.E.M. HQ. The take away video for “Share The Needle”, off the Athens, GA based musician’s debut solo album Audition Tapes, was filmed at Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden. The unique and historic site is one of the Georgia Trust’s “Places in Peril”, and the same location where R.E.M. filmed their iconic video for “Radio Free Europe.”
On August 16th T. Hardy Morris will host a special screening at Ciné in Athens, GA to showcase the “Audition Tapes From Places in Peril” video series in full, with proceeds going to support the Georgia Trust. For the series Morris and filmmaker/photographer Jason Thrasher traveled to 10 historic sites throughout Georgia to film live performance “take away” videos of each song on Audition Tapes. All of these sites have been chosen for the “Places In Peril” list, published annually by the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation to draw attention to historic sites threatened by demolition and neglect (Learn more). Peace.
