040 – Paranormal Bouquet – I’m Censoring You
(Note: I wrote a huge long article and blogger didn’t save it, so I had to rush through and rewrite what I wrote previously from memory, hope you enjoy).
What do you think people from the 1920’s would think if they found out that in the 2020’s Noize and Ambient music was the popular music? The music that the kids were bopping their heads to? No!? Well, ok maybe it hasn’t come that far yet…. But a guy can dream cant he?
I think we have reached a point in history (don’t you?) where we are running out of notes, running out of chords. How many more C chords can be strummed? How many guitar notes played and beats heard? And herein is where we enter the world of noise music – or non-music. That is, it is music in the sense that we combine apparently random noises and paste them together in song.
That along with my interest in an X-Files type of world – Paranormal Bouquet is a quote from the X-Files where Mulder said to Scully something along the lines of “what do you think the aliens are just going to leave us a Paranormal Bouquet?”. No, Not Likely. But I leave you this a Paranormal Bouquet of non-music influenced by Creepy Mulder.
The collection of noise begins with two epics Fuck You, I’m Censoring You (Part 1) and You Have No Speech (You may see a theme running here) clocking in at 13 minutes and 22 minutes respectively – the two tracks lay the groundwork for the dark atmospheric world of that Paranormal Bouquet and display some of the main qualities of that collage work of non-music.
The following 3 tracks, though shorter, clocking in at 3 – (Fuck You, I’m Censoring You (Part. 2)), 4 (Your Skin Stings) and 5 (I Dont Like You Today And I Probably Wont Like You Tommorow) minutes – are brief glimpses into this alternate universe of mind and space and of the non-music pasticherie – that is, the layers that form the cake of ambient noize.
The album ends with the 17 minute War Is Upon Us – which can be played either as war anthem or as an example of what it might feel like to have your remains shot into space and floating for centuries to come.
We hope you enjoy the music of Creepy Mulder! Cheers.
