MY EXPERIMENTAL NOVEL, ‹ LIMPING TO AN INTELLECTUAL IMPASSE ›, IS NOW AVAILABLE:
Limping To An Intellectual Impasse
« Bring together things that have not yet been brought together and did not seem predisposed to be so.»
-Robert Bresson, Notes on the Cinematograph
My approach to music is rarely, if ever, in a traditional vein. My music is an experiment, a playing around, with whatever ideas or tools most interest me at that moment. For a good understanding of my music, reference the text that accompanies ‹ Sound Experiment (A Composition In Five Movements)›.
My songs, at present, are broken into two sections.
The most recent are ‹ The Color Permutations › and the five ‹ Sound Experiments ›, (which can be listened to as a single composition under its complete title ‹ Sound Experiment (A Composition In Five Movements) ›. This is a cycle of songs where I am using sounds that are more difficult to listen to than are found in conventional music. These are industrial and electronic sounding, and do not fit into any specific catagory, except possibly that of Sound Art. For more information pertaining to this cycle, please reference the texts that are posted with the complete cycle and with both ‹ Sound Experiment 4 and 5 ›. Also, whatever comments may accompany each ‹ Sound Experiment ›. These compositions comprise the EP ‹ ---SOUND--- › ; Note: The complete ‹Sound Experiment (A Composition In Five Movements) › has been slightly modified since its posting. If you would like a copy of the finished version, please contact me.
The second section is oriented in the direction of spoken word. Please don't let this deter you. My approach is intentionally non-traditional. The first seven songs are my first experiments with GB. I construct a music and read a text along to it. The text consists of excerpts from my post-modernist novel ‹ Limping to an Intellectual Impasse ›. Despite their limited scope, I continue to enjoy these songs. These seven songs, along with a few never posted, comprise the EP, ‹ AllSaints ›.
‹ Chasin' the Boll Weevil › is a collaboration that has Travis Carter on Guitar. The two of us together comprise ‹ Band Of Boll Weevils ›.
