A Few Words About Chow Chow Music
Chow Chow Music is Peter Hanlon, with help from numerous friends and/or lovers. Before moving to New York City, Hanlon played in several Boston and Providence- based bands; pretended to be an Irish accordionist in several stage productions; and scored two comedic theater productions entitled Andy Warhol’s Christmas Special — one dealing with a pedophile Santa impersonator, the other with a Hannukah-driven hostage crisis. So it goes.
Hanlon released his first solo effort, Doomsday Scenarios, in 2008. The multi-layered sounds are a result of traditional instruments mixed with not-so-traditional, e.g. slammed doors, live instrument cables left on a heating vent and dropped shoes. A second album with the same M.O. was released in 2012: Bringing Brevity to Drug Music. This time it was less about the apocalypse and more about drugs.
Hanlon has written music for web shorts, full-length independent features, comedy pilots, commercials and numerous other forthcoming projects. He’s always interested in collaborating, so do send him a note if you’ve got some ideas.
