Ode to Fire

GoldFaceMoneyWatch and Heide Aungst

Artist: GoldFaceMoneyWatch (GFMW) is a solo psychedelic trap musician, music production engineer, artist, animator, beat creator, and lyricist. He has been part of groups including DO$EMONEY and The Worms and has collaborated with solo artists, such as Ariel Pink and Grammy winning producer Nate Fox. Author Walter Kirn featured him in the introduction to his Easy Chair column in Harper’s Magazine called Psychedelic Trap. His work can be found on SoundCloud and all streaming platforms – though the visual accompaniment to his Sonic catalog is painstakingly crafted on his Bad Trip Productions YouTube Channel. There, you can find animations, artwork, and videos he has worked on not only for himself as a solo artist, but also numerous colleagues and collaborators -- or just ask your smart speaker to play GoldFaceMoneyWatch.
