ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
King Chubby is a cooperative Ambient band. Our music, completely improvised, is atmospheric, rhythmic, sensuous, funny, high tech, low tech, no tech. The mix of electronics, percussion and home-made instruments, and flutes large and small is one aspect. The interaction of personalities is by far the more important.

King Chubby's music is absolutely unique, yet feels as if it has always been there, in your imagination. Whether its voices from the ether, soaring flute lines or primal drumming, King Chubby speaks to the body, the mind and the spirit.

Other Times was recorded live to two track. What you hear is how the band sounds in its trio incarnation.

"ethnic trance music fo rthe industrialized soul"

"H.P. Lovecraft set to music!"

King Chubby is:

Robert Dick -- flutes -- "the Jimi Hendrix of the flute", has totally blown open the very idea of what the flute is and what it can do -- plays everything from the ghiant, stand-up contrabass flute to his own invention, the "glissando headjoint" ( the "flute whammy bar") -- many solo recordings -- Soldier String 4-tet, Zorn, Steve Lacy, Paul Giger. Has played everything from classical to jamming with Skid Row on cable TV.

Ed Bialek plays synthesizers and samplers. He composed and produced music for TV for many years. He did early theme music for the SciFi Network and did the NY Mets theme song from 1988-1990. He was one of first sound designers for TV commercials. He was a winner of the Mobius and Advertising Age Awards and a Cannes nominee. His music has been performed on the David Letterman Show, American Comedy Awards, Saturday Night Live and Friday Night Videos. He has worked with artists as diverse as Mitch Ryder, Robert Thurmann, Taj Mahal and Peter Schikele.

Will Ryan -- the Fluid Druid -- handmade instruments, chanting, percussion -- a spirit driven musician playing percussion, birimbau, reed cornet, Shakuhachi , hand-made reed instruments and voice. His organic approach to new and other world music is uniquely his own. A blend of rhythms and tambours that can be heard on projects as diverse as recordings with Buddhist monks, performing at the Clio awards, and collaborating on film , dance, t.v. commercials and multi media productions.
