2012 Summer Of Xeno Giraffe Happening Now
Weekly music releases to occur throughout the remaining Summer of 2012 by Xeno Giraffe.
By: American Pangea
Last months release of EONS AGO, a 3 CD of musical science-fiction storytelling Prequel to last years Dinosaur UFOs: Episode One “Wolfmen From Outer Space” has been released for world-wide digital distribution. It had been announced last month( in May ) that full digital release would roll out slowly( the album has been available for sale about a month at CDBaby.com ) – that was to allow time for multiple projects to be completed to have enough material for weekly music releases throughout the Summer months into the Fall.
With yesterdays release of Xeno Giraffe's first ever single – “Dinosaur UFOs”, 2012 Summer of Xeno Giraffe kicks into high gear.
The newly REMASTERED 2003 math formula-based experimental albums that had only been available in CD form as music labeled from Xeno Giraffe & 21st World Future Music, has its first digital album release – starting with “Comfort Ride” and its signature lead track – Fractal Pterodactyls – on June 28th.
“Xeno Giraffe & 21st World Future Music is computer based and synthesized, but without loops. These are experiments, and ruminations about what is music, what makes music listenable, with the concept of what people of the future might be listening to,” said Xeno Giraffe.
“I had been thinking about the future of music, when I was working a job at the MIT AI Lab in 1981, while attending the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and taking an experimental music class there. I look on 21st World Future Music as a science project in sound that got out of control. I created 5 albums of sonically very different music from the modern forms we have today. Some of the music, I have to admit is challenging for the listener. This isn't pop( music ),” said Xeno Giraffe. “It's very different from the two science-fiction based electronic alt. Rock concept albums, I recently released.”
Following the release of Xeno Giraffe And 21st World Future Music album “Comfort Ride” – a week later – is the 1st single release from Xeno Giraffe – EONS AGO – called “Android Woman” on July 4th.
“The Summer Of Xeno Giraffe has weekly releases of new music into the Fall from there on,” said Xeno Giraffe. “I believe the world needs more whimsey in it with all the dire predictions of global collapse going on today. It was definitely a bit more fun growing up in the 60s and 70s with the cultural revolution going on in the U.S. Expectations about the future were dramatically different back then. I decided to see if I couldn't address some of these problems using the 'concept album' approach. The new albums work on a number of levels intellectually and emotionally, I think. They also have some cool grooves,” stated Xeno Giraffe.
“With a full schedule through the next few months, changes will inevitably occur, but as soon as I have the information on what's next, I'll pass it on,” said Xeno Giraffe.
