This album is a tribute to a certain kind of psychedelic rock, and especially
to the very first experimental albums by Tangerine Dream, as experts can tell
from the title, but not only.
Part of the influence comes from much of the music broadcast by the internet
radio show on space rock hosted by Jerry Kranitz (HERE),
who picks a lot of truly amazing space / psychedelic
material for his program. Finally, I stumbled across a vst instrument
- an electric organ
simulation called "Wurler" (created by Scott A. Root) that is just fantastic
and absolutely perfect to recreate the organ sound(s) from that era - that gave
all the vibes
to start the project (you can
hear it on every track, even when it doesn't sound like an organ ).
I wanted this album to sound as if it had been badly recorded in the early
70's by a bad engineer on drugs, performed by a bad band on LSD in the form
of total and bad
improvisation, all badly saturated, badly distorted and badly sounding,
down to the horrible tape noise, and transferred to CD today with basically
no remastering at all.
I'm against drugs and normally I'd try to have my music sound good, so why all
this? Well, first off, my passion for that kind of music. Second, it was a pretty
experiment, soundwise. But, above all, that is the way I was feeling at the time
of recording this album: badly improvised, badly saturated and distorted, badly
recorded and with a lot
of bad tape noise...
Life, I guess.
