“I pushed the idea to the edge, which is why I didn't have a chance to put a break in it. How far could I take it.” said Xeno Giraffe. “I worked on it, off and on, for 10 years before final release. It was very difficult to get everything going, and sounding OK throughout the length of the piece. I worked on it up to the last minute before handing it over for distribution to the fans.”
Moving between science fiction based concept albums and experiments in sonic perception has been a long term moving goal of Xeno Giraffe, who started as a mixed media art project with music, and evolved over time to “art experiments in sound”, starting in 1982.
“'Hope and Change' is my musical philosophy,”
Although, “Fractal Pterodactyls”
“Over a 10 year period of time, I must have rearranged this piece a hundred times,” said Xeno Giraffe. “The notes are so tightly tied together in all this variation that when you move one note – all the other notes have to be moved along with a lot of other musical parameters. Even though I absolutely love this song – it nearly killed me trying to get it right. I could still tinker with it, but I had to finally say 'good enough.'”
A landmark achievement, “Fractal Pterodactyls”
