Theá "looping music vs spoken word" album is finally up at
I've been meaning to write to you (and the LD list) to say that
I got a copy of this CD that you sent me just yesterday. I've
listened to it a couple of times now and it's a damn fine disk.
Let me tell you, at first a CD of a collaborative work between
a "corporate motivational and/or educational seminar speaker"
and an "avant" leaning looping musician seems a really odd paring.
With anyone else it could've been total snores-ville.
However, this projects works on so many unexpected (and
often contradictory) levels that I am at first astonished
that the CD exists at all . . . and then that it hasn't
existed much sooner than this. It's perfect!
It works as a piece of artful, comedic irony and as thought
provoking social/corporate statement/commentary all at
once and the same time. PLUS it works as music too. It's a
damn entertaining listening experience if you ask me.
The next time I have a 9-to-5 "day job" in the corporate
world I'm going to request that they hire you guys to give
us our "briefing" on company 401k retirement plan and
health benefits! Heheh. I think I might even stay awake
for it then.
The other disk you sent, the Per2Per "Water Album" is great
too BTW. But you pairing with the speaker is the stuff of genius.
Its so good I may buy another copy to send to a friend. I am
having a hard time getting the collaborative project out of
my mind while listening to this other disk unfortunately.
I think I'll have to wait a while before I listen to the "Water
Album" again so I can consider it on it's own merit.
