Twin Cities chamber quartet Jelloslave contributed a range of music to the soundtrack to a new documentary giving voice to the religious left and support for marriage equality.
“God Votes No,” produced by MNuet founder Matt Peiken, carries a bed of music from Jelloslave, including cuts from the group’s two albums—”Purple Orange” and “Touch It.” Jelloslave members are cellists Jacqueline Ultan and Michelle Kinney, drummer Greg Schutte and percussionist Gary Waryan. “God Votes No” is available for free viewing on YouTube and on Faith Forward Minnesota—a site Peiken created for his documentary project—as well as the project’s Facebook page.
“God Votes No” features interviews with faith leaders, scholars and everyday people discussing how their readings of religious texts support same-sex marriage. U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, practicing Mormons Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker of the Duluth band Low, author-scholar Jay Michaelson and Minneapolis Rabbi Melissa Simon are among those featured in the 49-minute video.
