Grand Ruin was the first musical project I worked on with Erik Brown. It mostly amounted to us writing and fiddling around with acoustic songs while living in an apartment in Ames, IA. We never performed live, but we made all the preparations for it. One of them was this site, which was my first experiment with using full-page photography as a frame for text information. Because there was so little text, it more or less worked, though I do regret the ugly font choice.
