Chicago on Easter Sunday is a quiet, chilly city, unless you happen to be in Narnia Recording Studios, the basement turned recording studio of Chicago sound engineer Brain Frost, alongside the pint-sized Tavi Gevinson and the Emmy-nominated guitarist Aaron Koopel.

We spent the day with Tavi Gevinson recording her dialogue for the film and, with Koopel at her side, she covered acoustic renditions of both Neil Young’s 1972 U.S. Billboard #1 hit Heart of Gold and the Pet Shop Boys’ 1988 U.K. Billboard #1 hit Heart. Tavi Gevinson has transformed both songs into hauntingly beautiful renditions that complement the story of CADAVER.
