Postmarks is a duo with saxophonist Boris Hauf and pianist D Bayne. Their first album Western Ave was recorded in Chicago (2005) and released as a limited- edition CD on Luminescence Records. The 100 copies were packaged in unique covers, each a handcrafted collage from 1920s Chicago postcards by T. Kellers of STUDIO TWELVE 3. For National Parks, Hauf and Bayne went to Vienna, Austria to record with guitar-experimentalist Martin Siewert. Musical outlines for the pieces were inspired by U.S. national parks and their representation in iconic posters from the 1930s and 1940s.
