Episode 142: Jason Hamacher

Download

You may know Jason Hamacher as the drummer for Frodus, Decahedron, Combatwoundedveteran or Battery. These days he currently plays in Regents and goes to Syria in order to record religious hymns that have never been documented in history. You read that right, on this episode of Going Off Track we barely talk about music, choosing to focus on Hamacher’s incredibly dangerous visits to Syria to document the Aramic Syrian Orthodox church. The story of how he ended up there, what he was trying to capture and how he narrowly escaped being captured are so unbelievable that’s it’s hard to do this podcast justice. Just listen to it and let Hamacher’s bravery and passion for art guide you through.
