Zoomoozophone Review: Issue 1

                Day two of the continuing coverage that is Zoomoozophone Review! Yes everyone ought to be excited. This is culture being made free of charge to the masses. Of course the masses need to know where to look. With this little collection (well not little like over a hundred pages) Matt Margo introduces new readers to a new world. 

                Kell Gallery sleeps on a sofa. Oh yes that is the life of New York. A moment spent on the subway is wasted. Hence people find themselves on couches all of the time. People sleep together in New York to huddle for warmth. Wet concrete in a concrete jungle sounds about right. Breakfasts of it all require kid gloves to handle the delicacy of the situation. 

                Hugh Tribbey sees soiled cops. Unfortunately cops are not always very good with bladder control. Put into the line of fire they often get worried, overly so. Trampled leaves give good clues to the noses on the grindstone but too much nose results in a nasty nosebleed. Sometimes it is best to ignore the clues and leave it for another shoe. Crushed popcorn happens frequently with too much want. Animated shorts require a necessary movie-going experience. Anger nightmares are yellow before they get red with violence. Cowardice creeps in hoping to move the mind out of harm’s way. 

                Jeff Harrison augers a quarantine for an O. Yes any boring would tend to make an O shape. The drill bit determines the size of the quarantine. People require a way to get away from themselves. A government bash is something to avoid. Calmness comes from the bash the aftereffect. Words find themselves into cramped quarters all of the time yet manages to make tender to the touch, heads brought fully into the clouds. 

                John Pursch explores everything. Offal is delivered to a special someone’s door. They use their ear with great skill. Chia’s are campy and require croutons for they are living, growing salads. Streams join into the mix showing off the beauty of a mechanical hum. Individuals take great pride in the quality of their mocking. An art form to some the better the string the stronger it can bring others together. The true way to bring people together is to insult them. 

                 Kushal Poddar awakes from a TV set dream. That is an antiquated dream as the sloth of TV makes way for the sloth of the Internet. Coffee is important to keep the dreams at bay focusing on the present. Disruptions occur with startlingly frequency in the world. 

                John Rogers looks for the red handed and finds them living in the cloud. Above the clouds John Rogers lives in the cloud. He looks out a window and sees the head stuck in the clouds. Long ago those people would have been chastised. Now they are celebrated. He is in love with the skin he cannot touch. One day he will be able to but not today. 

                Alexander Limarev reassures readers that they might find death. Usually death finds people. Death is nice that way. Blues happen in the sky all the time to try and prevent others from suffering. To date that has not stopped a single bad thought. 

                Thanks to the nice comforting image of death it is time to end this section. Next up on the wonderful agenda is the greatness that is eating an orange.

Zoomoozophone Review: Issue 1

                Such a hard day and such a long night must have been spent putting this all together. Matt Margo never sleeps. He edits. He collects. With the end of the first day of coverage (this is going to be a multi-day affair to remember) keep in mind there are plenty of pages to check out, many new artists to explore. 

                Brooke Michelle Robinson closes the door to High School. That is the first step. Souls like being full of color and coral are beautiful in the watery light. Horses would eat donuts if they could they are sick of the apples somebody told them they liked. Doorknobs assist the world with closing out a room to the outside realm. Fresno is a place people mention all the time yet few ever see its majestic glory. Hurrying to the fantasy feast is of the utmost important. People got to eat and a fantasy involves a feasting frenzy. Cute ones with clipboards sit on the sidelines taking great notes about the world they want to live in. 

                Tamara Neufeld sends her conversations to a special someone. She waits a day or so to avoid ruining a school day. Deep in the school life requires a great amount of concentration. Life of sexuality needs a great amount of proximity. Nobody enjoys sex from far away. Eyes come home at night after long days of staring at things. Absorbing information is a livelihood and people make millions of dollars knowing the right things. 

                Caleb Bouchard dreams of going to church. Obviously Caleb Bouchard needs to improve upon his wholesome subconscious. He gets to listen to some music in church hopefully earlier Guns N’ Roses kind of stuff. Bob Dylan might not suit everybody’s taste it takes a while to really get into him. In reality Caleb Bouchard watches old people, yet another sign he may need to increase the adrenaline rush of his life. 

                Arlo Brooks becomes a jar. To break the spell the jar has over him he goes all Winnie the Pooh on it getting his head stuck in it. Such a terrible headspace involves head break. By using molasses one can slowdown the pace of their lives. Lives are meant to be lived slowly. When lives move too quickly they are short. Lives that move too slowly can get rather dreary. 

                Colin James goes to rock camp. Such a cruel fate for anyone longing to be a rocker, the rock camp used to mine actual rocks. Due to the decrease in mineral wealth across the world people have turned to making culture in hopes that cultural significance will distract from gradually decreasing standards of living. 

                Anca Mihaela tempts others to find sense. They find none. With eyes wide shut they try to embody the meaning of their words. Leapt up on eyelid screens they understand their words shall live on far longer than they could have possibly imagined. 

                Penny Goring meets a special someone in a doorway. They flirt. They fuck. Modern life requires a modern fuck. Love is poetry. Fucking is something entirely different. A few thoughts go into fucking like “when do I get to fuck” and “cool, I am fucking now”. Physical sensation is as important as intellectual. Both are nice to have but both are hard to have. It is one or the other the smell stench and London waiting to see everything the day after a lay-by. 

                Honestly I would be doing the world a great disservice by not ending it with one of my all-time favorite writers, Penny Goring. One day I hope to meet Penny Goring and discuss the important things in life. The work of Penny Goring is quite frankly stunning. While she only has one piece in here the benefit of the collection is that there are plenty more pieces to explore, on day two of this extensive-ass coverage.

Zoomoozophone Review: Issue 1

                All good things come to an end. The end in this case is incredibly far away. With so many artists these words were born to run. Pages and pages are filled with running words happy to frolic freely in the springtime air. 

                Wayne Mason leaks words through his pores. Psychic sweat is meant to cool off the conscious being. If somebody gives their two cents for a penny dream the penny dream investment becomes a profitable enterprise. Longing to hear the voice of words is difficult. Reading gives half the meaning keeping the other half for the writer. Dissonance is a necessary part of language. Art is about death. Any other meaning is accidental. Every piece created on behalf of art is an attempt at immortality. Culture wars enjoy the narration by esteemed cultural warriors, the sorts that fight with their understanding of a world they helped to create. 

                Patrick Trotti tries to let go. When an important person passes away those closest try to go on however difficult it may be. For a while the person’s imprint lasts on the mind. Nobody knows how to explain to others just how important the person was on their lives, they just wouldn’t understand. 

                Erik Moshe releases his inner nerd following the advice of a boy. A traffic light gets irritated by the scratching at the surface. Stopping everyone to re-examine its life takes a few moments. Poor tectonic boy gets graded on his efforts at school. Civics works best for the geographically defined creature. Homeland Security wants to control the Earth yet it only works for a large segment of a relatively minor continent. 

                Rachel Hyman hides. Such things are usual for the changing of the seasons. Journeys into the mind occur when the world is frozen. With sand the frozen wasteland gains a little bit of traction. After the frozen ground thaws the sand becomes a beach for everyone to enjoy. 

                Rachel Hyman and Justin Carter watch the explosion at the old saw mill down yonder by the river. Wood shavings mark the end of the industrial area. Abstract art comes into the old saw mill converted successfully into lofts for those longing for a simpler time when things were equal. The deficiency in art happens after reality has worn out its welcome and the only thing stomachs can handle is abstraction. 

                Austin Islam enjoys Honey Nut Cheerios like Omar from the hit series “The Wire”. Every bowl is full of honeyed words. Yes people ought to be more assertive. The lives they lead are theirs. Nobody else can help them live it up. Cigarettes are wastes of cash. Within that there is a hierarchy of things that vary in taste. Every year the age becomes more or less vital. Youth is vital to the world without it there can never be change. At least youth has the opportunity to have a cheese cake every now and again, remembering the time they went to a gas station to be real. Hotel lobbies keep travelers occupied. Employees at a hotel are aware of everything of traveling. Kids traveling are among the worst sorts of travelers, wanting to make connections with people who would prefer to be left alone. Life is like that: wanting to include and exclude equally. 

                “This section is over. Expect the next section to follow immediately.” – Austin Islam

Zoomoozophone Review: Issue 1

                Zoomoozophone Review picked the best for its first inaugural batch. Matt Margo is the brains behind the operation. With over one hundred pages it is obvious he wracked his mind over every possible piece. Thanks to his hard work he has brought forth a collection that can stand the test of time. Even though the collection did not study for the test of time it is sure to do fine. 

                Howie Good documents heart beats. A simple question about the next Wisconsin makes sense. Inward stares say more than words ever could. Zombies like the introspective nature it helps them succeed at their goal for brains. Simplified spelling allows zombies to communicate via the Internet, a world set up for humans who gave up on reality long ago. Humans are jigsaw puzzles in love with beauty hence their propensity for mirrors. 

                Glen Armstrong knows myth hates being thrown a curveball. From long ago myth has difficultly handling new things preferring to live in the old. Leaky fountain pens make any sort of clothing more interesting; that is their job and they do it with pride. Clothing runs on juice because clothing is in it to win it. 

                I’m here! Check my style out. 

                Volodymyr Bilyk asks to turn the urn and tutu too. Dance is a kind of death hence the need for a dead dance to be successfully cremated. Some things are better off dead. 

                 Rhoda Penmarq wants the reader to experience quietude. Such things are hard to come by in a world of sound. The sounds dominate everything. Life with socks is a life worth living. A train is easily missed. Cities make certain everyone misses a train at some point. Punctuality has nothing to do with it. With a schedule chance becomes a serious thing. 

                Chuck Leary has been everything that anybody could ever want to be. From his years of experience he knows the truth about penetration. Military advisers use penetration in a different way than the layperson does, and boy does the layperson know about everything. 

                Steve Klepetar desires to see where the stars grew. That is an impossible task. Where a star grows is in the heart of the universe. Millions of years pass by before the star’s light is visible to the foolish creatures below on a green-blue orb. Ladders of smoke try to keep the stars in their correct positions placing them according to their power. 

                Josh Friedlander describes the live of a special artist. For some the world is not enough. More than a credo it is a way of life for others. Artists struggle their entire lives hoping to make an impact. Years later their lofty goals are achieved. The more suffering an artist goes through the more valuable their work becomes. 

                Alexandra Naughton understands that a bridge looks like a dinosaur. Travel is as ancient as a dinosaur. Where people need to go is an afterthought. Sweetness of a person can create cavities after the sugar high is gone. Inquisitive natures are torn down for parking lots. Every assumption needs a place to park itself. 

                Like the dinosaurs many think that online literature, the experimental best kind will go extinct someday. Fortunately that is far from the case judging from the epic batch coming out of the eyes and ears of writers across the world. For this is going to be a great event that continues…right now!

ILVCIA – In the Nature of Reason 6.5

                ILVCIA’s ‘In the Nature of Reason’ manages to create a narrative through six sprawling pieces. Possessing quite a large ensemble it brings everything together quite nicely into a giant whole. Synthesizer works nicely throughout the pieces giving the songs a certain flavor. Vocals add to the level of smoothness. By maintaining the groove throughout each piece the sense of far larger works comes up. Additional movements throughout the songs allow for interplay and a cyclical feel to the overall theme. 

                ‘The Safe’ begins things off on a large canvas with the longest track on the entire album, clocking in at over 12 minutes. Over the course of the song everything changes while remaining true to the initial beginning of the song. Variations on a theme allow for it to gain an additional emotional impact from the music. ‘Universe of Fields’ goes for a psychedelic vibe. Slow on beginning it builds up quite nicely with a nice 60s flavor to it.  For the three ‘Baghdad’ pieces each one takes a dramatically different approach. ‘The Gates’ takes a relatively flexible approach with a nice example of group play. After this ‘The Market’ takes a more active tact sounding almost summery in tone. ‘The Suburbs’ allows the trilogy to end with a passionate chugging away to the closers of ‘Sir T. Weaver’. 

                ‘In the Nature of Reason’ the interplay is wonderful. ILVCIA does a good job listening to itself, knowing when to thicken the mix and also knowing when to pull away leaving the bare bones of the songs.

Lone – Reality Testing

                Lone is best known for 2012 album “Galaxy Garden” which won a rare “Best of 2012” on Beach Sloth’s end of year list. It has been quite some time since anyone heard a peep from the producer. During that time he came out with a small offering to the world, an EP “Airglow Fires” that explored house music. With his latest offering “Reality Testing” there appears to be a few different strains at work. Some of them are in line with his previous recordings and a few are slightly new influences.





                Thus far only “2 is 8” has been given to the swarming public. A few observations about the track:


1.       It seems to use the playful sense of humor that Lone included on his “Galaxy Garden” and the “Airglow Fires”. Like his peer Luke Vibert he does not shy away from the sillier elements within his sounds.


2.       Bright sounds are still in check. There is something almost neon about the sounds Lone uses for his work.


3.       Unlike his previous work there is a far greater debt to hip-hop. While this was on “Galaxy Garden” to a degree on this track Lone includes it in a far greater manner.


4.       There is a pop-influenced aspect to this work. Previous pieces displayed Lone’s penchant for messing with rhythm, time signatures. This is much more relaxed. 





What does this mean for “Reality Testing”? Last time Lone made an album he received moderate attention for “Galaxy Garden” just barely missing out on “Best New” status from multiple sites, neatly flying under the radar. Can “Reality Testing” by virtue of its more accessible origins (house versus IDM, hip-hop versus dubstep) help Lone find a larger audience? Is that even what he wants? Only time will tell.

mother spit – carve 7.1

                carve whittles away the time. mother spit manages to create a field of sound that is absolutely alien. Noise, ambient, and drone come together to make a completely multi-dimensional piece without any attachment to conventional structure. This is an extremely exciting approach to the idea of what constitutes music. Evolution happens with such methodical precision that mother spit’s carve resembles an organic, living breathing creature than an outright piece of music. Sound remains firmly anchored in the digital world. 

                Picking out specific moments is a true challenge. When Brian Eno came out with ‘Discreet Music’ he never realized how discreet it could get. So starved is the piece from any human interaction that even the smallest tidbits of what could be considered recognizable are latched onto. A place silent enough to fully appreciate it does not exist. During parts of it comes close to resembling an amplified version of Richard Chartier’s near-silent works. Tiny moments of it appear to sound akin to environment noise heavily treated. However without any outright recognition it is impossible to tell. 

                With this piece mother spit achieves a perfect clean piece of work. If freedom ever had a soundtrack it would be this, simply perfectly formed fields of gray sound. Melodic influences have been scrubbed clean to reveal a perfect churning industrial vibe. Few musicians have ever gone this far in taking away what makes human music sound human. When computers meditate they sound like carve.

'THE YOLO PAGES' trailer! SCARY IF WATCH FULLSCREEN BRAVE

                The YOLO Pages is so good it is scary. Younger viewers are advised. 

                Graveyards tend to be pretty Goth places. Various teenagers of the Goth persuasion go to graveyards to hang out. Many believe this has something to do with the graveyard being the most depressing place a person could think of but such an assumption is untrue. To a teenage Goth the most depressing place is the GAP the place they work at after-school in order to afford their Hot Topic lifestyle. Few Goths would ever want to be in their GAP store after-hours when the sun sets for they know that is when they could bump into classmates, hence ruining their Goth graveyard cred. 

                Boost House believes strongly in the Gothic lifestyle. Long ago when Rome burned at the hands of the Goths, the Goths screamed “YOLO” yet the Romans had no Latin words for YOLO, only a close approximation of “Carpe Diem” to seize the day. Sadly Romans lacked enough Goth to Latin translators via the end of their empire. Years later, literally centuries, that YOLO phrase that accompanied the sacking of Rome would be employed once more, online, in a world within a world. The YOLO Pages celebrates the brave new world going online; making art without a care in the world, for the world has migrated away from reality into a surreal digital realm. 

                An anthology like the YOLO Pages has never been brought into the physical realm. Such things are hard to bring offline. Yet the brave people at Boost House have done exactly that. They have opened a portal from the digital into the physical realm. What does this mean for humanity? Can humanity even handle becoming digital? Long ago Frenchman wearing robot helmets proclaimed that they were human after all. Honestly though with beats that fine who could ever believe that Daft Punk was ever anything but human? Even Flarf, that celebrated art form, is sometimes thought to be beyond the human realm. Writers within the YOLO Pages prove that at length. 

                Edible paper might have been a good idea for the YOLO Pages. Writing tastes pretty yummy especially when it is this good. The almighty maker of the universe warns individuals that failure to read the YOLO pages might result in an eternity in damnation. Considering that fact that the YOLO Pages is only $15, it seems like a pretty good deal for salvation. Normally salvation takes an entire lifetime of good deeds, yet so great is the power of the YOLO Pages that an individual corrupted to their core can find grace through its grand pages. 

                Whoever is interested in the power of the YOLO Pages can buy it here and see what all the talk is about.
