My improbable “music” career continues to amaze and amuse me. Yesterday I got email from a Spanish fan alerting me to his review of Boogafoo and Pink Toads.
Google Translate assures me that the review says:
In the mid 70’s, a man named Doug Sharp let his young fingers on a Moog synthesizer play, finding ways pitched noise, full of intensity oscillations, which remained secret for decades, kept on tape until scanning XXI century. BOOGAFOO MUSIC (Itsu Jitsu, 2011), particular definition provided by her daughter, is eaten as a rehearsal for massage hallucinatory ears open, which gives two pieces that exceed 13 minutes, “Opus # Glork, Move 2” and “Schveltronia Bimmsler études, “sequenced together with other shorter. Underline also “Wasp train”, a playful track that moves like a locomotive difficult to pinpoint. Look to the right was saved …
Sharp does not stop to rescue these old keys, but proposes very new lines of flight, more puzzling, in Bite-Sized 5 Dozen Sonic Sculptures One (Itsu Jitsu, 2011), EP opening of a saga that will extend to 5, to be reissued in a box complete with a remix album. The dozen exhibits sculptures of yore as “fip fip Peodopular” the same track that closes BOOGAFOO … intersection that leads to an outbreak of glitch-hop (“Kuul”), the elusive rock of “Complicated”, kinematics for pissing of fear of “Citizen Sane” or IDM with muriatic acid to “Skink gobblers.” Among these miniatures (only two exceed the minutes) stand a “Metal on Metal” that strikes true, and “Down on the Pharm” or the base that Michael Jackson had worked in the case of pop to avant-garde. Investigations are appreciated.
I hope some of my Spanish/English-speaking friends can refine this translation. I love the fact that my music “is eaten as a rehearsal for massage hallucinatory ears open” and that “Sane Citizen” is “kinematics for pissing of fear.” Those are both valid comments about my music.
Entries continue to pour in for the 5 Bite-Sized Sonic Sculpture remixes. Hox turned in a wild and wooly remix of the whole album that he calls (poetically) “4:33:”, which he describes as “Result is like a demented drama micro-opera with a further more demented soundtrack.”
I’ve got a track on the ALTERED STATE OF MIND compilation. It’s a fairly long, dark track called “Oppressed by Dreamdark” because it was turned down by the Dreamdark label for being too dark and dreamy.
Here’s a picture of some Lily Pads in Sunlight for all you nature fans:
My health is still scraping bottom but I am a lucky man because I can rest to recuperate.
Next week I do some querying to capitalize on the fact that Angry Robot is looking at my full of Channel Zilch.
