The Fun Continues....
My first album in seven years, Bach: The Well Tempered Clavier Book 1 has been released on my new label, Praxis Classics.
The album consists of 5 improvised pieces where Bach's classic collection of fugues and preludes is fed into my randomization algorithms and transformed into something completely different and exciting. This project is a natural outgrowth of my End Of History series of sound installations, performances and print editions that I have done over the last 5 years. Not only does it function as and exploration into cultural production and expressed power through form, but it's also a fun little culture jamming prank in that it comes up in searches for Bach on iTunes, Amazon, Zune, Spotify and many other online retailers! Soon pieces of it will be inserted into classical streams on Jango as well.
Praxis is all about transforming ideas into action and my work in this regard, is among many things, a critical re-evaluation of western art music and the role of culture as a mechanism of control.
