composed and recorded the soundtrack for the film Apartment Hunting.
It is widely considered her second solo album, but don't believe
everything you hear/read/whatever.
Bill Robertson on collaboratiing with M2HO:
musical process on APARTMENT HUNTING was a little different because
it ended up being more of a collaborative effort between Mary, myself
and Rusty McCarthy, Mary's long time collaborator. Most of the compositions
are Mary's, some are mine and some are Rusty's. Some of the songs
were completely improvised with Rusty and Mary Margaret's long-time
musician friends like Hugh Marsh, Mike Sloski and Phil Dwyer (to
name just a few) who came out to jam in Rusty's studio. We would
watch the film and record as we watched, constantly discussing and
feeling it through as we went along. Other pieces were composed
by Mary Margaret and musicians were brought in one by one to lay
down the parts.
feel incredibly lucky to have worked with such talented musicians.
Mary is an international recording star and Rusty and the rest of
the gang are some of the most talented musicians in the city. As
well as being an incredible musical talent, Mary is a brilliant
songwriter. She is also very funny and a tremendous spirit. It has
been a real gift for me to be able to collaborate with somebody
so talented. I'm beginning to work on a script for her, to highlight
her multiple talents.
