ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A composer above all else, Jeremy LaDoux, manages to craft something close to quirky pop music through the use of a computer orchestra, traditional rock instrumentation, decomposing magnetic tape samples and found sounds.

The music tells stories and if the listener has trouble visualizing what the tale might be, the title of each piece is description enough.

Though it is hard to compare Jeremy and his time machine to other artists, it’s possible to hear some of his influences in the compositions. Frank Zappa, Beat Happening, Fred Frith, Daniel Johnston, Charles Mingus, Stravinsky and even the sounds of the damp Northwest basement in which the songs were created can be heard within.
