BEAUTIFUL MUSIC FOR AN UGLY WORLD / LEIBOWITZ RECORDS MANTOVANI
Jerry Leibowitz: Electronics, Noises and Mix
Mantovani: Orchestration, Pops and Clicks
Mix A: 22:58 / Mix B: 22:58
BMFAUW is the first in a series of experimental recordings exploring sonic relationships between ambience and cacophony, addressing issues regarding chaos, control and pre-conditioned responses. Is the sound of a jack-hammer truly as disturbing as our "processor" tells us or are there pre-conceptions involved which instruct us to react in a specific manner ?(i.e. as small children, observing others react negatively to sounds.) In a world polluted by noise, desensitization and re-training becomes an intriguing alternative to cringe reaction. A bit of BMFAUW can be heard briefly on Lollapalooza guitarist-noise-impresario Nels Cline's newest release, "Ground."
