West to the Octopus
CD Synopsis: Hallucinogenic hi-jinx and factory-strength techno-jamz. Inspired by 20th century Japanese art and fueled by one man's desire to make a lot of noise! A PC loaded with original and found music loops, samples and sounds is this artist's studio/palette. 'All I need can be created on the keyboard' says Spitznagel; 'with this computer I can conjure up more musical voodoo then I ever could with my paisley Telecaster!' Spitznagel's music ranges from acid-jazz to retro-electro to techno-dub to laptop-blip'n'glitch. With 30 years of experience in the music business and 15 of those as a professional musician, Spitznagel brings a broad perspective to the world of loop- and sample-based music. CADENCE, the world-renowned jazz magazine, has stated: 'Spitznagel negotiates a unique solo performance using electronics as his paintbrush and an extra-wide soundstage on which to splatter his creation'.
