Objects That We Found in the Well is a music performance by Nani FM and her collaborators resulting from a year-long exploration of public and private space in NYC through the use of music and sound. Nani FM wrote and recorded 5 original songs at King Killer Studios Brooklyn. After capturing the studio tracks, Nani FM scouted recording locations in her home borough of Staten Island with naturally beautiful acoustics, working with more than a dozen NYC-based artists to complete the project.
