Jort Wearing, Biking Lumberjack is Your Spirit Animal

In the forests of New England lives a man who is arguably more idea than actual human. With apiercing stare not unlike the Night's King,  he has been called Boltar Benedict, Poppi, Juan Cool Romance, Turbo Romance, finally settling on the moniker Ultra Romance.

Ultra Romance believes in the New England values of craftsmanship and longevity, and likes his bikes to align with this blue collar ethos. Although it could be easy to dismiss this guy as a joke or hipster, I actually really enjoy his point of view. He is riding an old bike on dirt roads, not concerned about buying a new carbon 27.5 bike, or really anything for that matter. For him the bike is an invention that enables him to explore, which is something I believe we all would like to do more of. 

This film is great, I’m a big fan of jorts and all things bikes.

I’m primarily interested in the filmmakers music choice here - It went from metal music in the beginning to some light hearted bluegrass/folk, this completely changes the mood of the film. What was the overall juxtaposition of sound intended to accomplish for the viewer? You’ve peaked my interest now…
