Slow Motion Picture is an orchestral alternative rock project from New York, New York led by multi-instrumentalist turned Producer, Brian Caesar (former bassist of the band As Tall As Lions), featuring vocalist Elle Morisette (taking on the role of the band’s new front-woman) and violist Suzanne Morello.
The project originally began as a duo in 2009, originally recorded under the name “For Every Story Untold” with Caesar writing the majority of musical arrangements and singer/ pianist Lauren Edman (Sleepthief). The two wrote score-like songs to accompany a series ghost stories that Caesar had originally written to cope with the loss of his father. Later adding drummer Aaron Kelly, keyboardist Marco Talamo, and bassist Dan Timmons to the live lineup, they began playing venues around the New York area including several sold-out shows opening for up and coming artists such as Susanne Sundfør (M83), Salt Cathedral and Braeves.
In 2014, Lauren Edman decided to leave the group to focus more on her project Northern Flicker. Slow Motion Picture released its debut album “In Memory Of…” shortly after. The album was well received and led to the song “Opening” getting a prominent spot on the Ear to Ear Records / Gerpfast Kolektif compilation REVOLUTION-The Shoegaze Revival.
Caesar continued building scores after the band split and in 2016 began working with upcoming vocalist Elle Morisette and violist Suzanne Morello, later recording the band’s first collaboration “Old Wooden Boards (feat. Elle Morisette)” in 2017, paving the way for a comeback in 2018.
