ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
To me experimental means...you never heard anything quite like it. I'm guessing "Crazy Music" will fill the bill. These are some favorites of my own compositions, and also ones many people find ..um..difficult. The fact that you are poking around in this genre however, inclines me to think that you might enjoy these tunes. They were created with traditional instruments, voice and re-engineered electronics, and are all over and off the map stylistically. I don't really think there is any crazy music - but once you elevate sound itself to a level equal with melody, harmony and rhythm you've got some interesting musical possibilities - and a marketing problem! Who cares. I made this music because I had to, and for the pleasure of anyone who can hear it.

p.s. I take it back, "Prescription Only Music" is definitely crazy !

Originally from N.Y. I have been active in the Free-Jazz and general weird music scenes mostly in Texas and Colorado for some time, playing drums, guitar and live electronics. Early music experience includes Scottish drumming, studying bass, piano and flute; in more recent years recorded/played with trumpet player Dennis Gonzalez and played/recorded/toured with the inimitable, multi-reed player Jack Wright. A sprinkling of pit playing, country gigs, accompanying a trick bicycle riding act, etc. etc... you get the picture.
I hope you have some fun with my music.

And, I recommend using headphones or enough volume to hear the upper harmonic play, especially in the drone pieces.

Eclectic, melting fun house mirror in a lightning storm
You won't find a more eclectic mix of material on one cd on this website (please email me if you do: echomill37@yahoo.com). But what connects the pieces is a consistent thread of intelligence, humor, and surprise. Ron's music is informed by a wide-ranging view of the entirety of our wonderful world of music.

How Crazy is Crazy?
Crazy Music is one man’s vast landscape of sound to be mined by those with a taste for innovation and a thirst for the avant-garde. Bucknam’s broad base of musical history resonates in compositions that move from electronic space to the spoken word. From the Eastern undertones in “When Irish Eyes are Dilated,” to the delightful repetition of speech in “Hearing in Tongues,” Bucknam proves to us, once again, that his diverse musical palette is smart, challenging, and uncompromised.
