Have you heard any of Frank Zappa's synclavier works? https://youtu.be/MPOYmf6tpg0?t=49s Programmed in the very early 90's with a synclavier on an Apple II computer (notes typed in one-by-one on a green/black screen). The level of cheeky musical wit and technical ingenuity is ridiculous.
Sounds pretty unlistenable to me. :0)
Frank Zappa is one of those people that I always feel I ought to have investigated more than I have, as most of my favourite musicians site him as an influence somewhere along the line. I bought the album 'Freak Out' on cassette for £1 years ago and played it incessantly for years [listening to it now on YouTube - genius.] but everything else I've heard of his just hits my ears and bounces off.
The Synclavier stuff in particular sounds like a home organ demo performed by somebody who has had too much Adderall.
Hi Ott, I hope you're enjoying the long hours in your studio or frolicking in the hills making the new album. I'm very excited to hear it. I notice you have your tunes available via Bandcamp as well as iTunes, and presumably elsewhere. I'm wondering if you have any experience worth sharing with digital distribution? I'm about to release an EP and am looking into CD Baby, Reverb Nation, et al. Any advice? Best wishes, Andrew.Ott responded on 04/27/2015 Next question
