debut cassette by THE FATHERS (Headboggle/Nathan Tusco collab)
out now on the Irish imprint, Fort Evil Fruit, :::

THE FATHERS - FEF26


This is the debut release from the duo (named in tribute to Father Ted) of Tusco Terror’s Nathan Bowers (aka Coagulator) and Derek Gedalecia (best known as Head boggle). The latter’s predilection for unlikely instrumental combinations is evident in a mix of nylon-string guitar plucking and modular synth mayhem, making for an exhilarating and disorientating acoustic ambiguity. Hallucinatory, mischievous and raw. This EP-length tape features one studio and one live track.

 

Thanks Decoder for the preview of the upcoming Headboggle LP on Experimedia and the premiere of a video from the album:

VIDEO PREMIERE: HEAD BOGGLE – “’56 TUNE”

POSTED BY  ON JUNE 12, 2014

Derek Gedalecia’s Head Boggle guise has been splitting skulls and rifling through the contents within for several years now from his San Francisco locale, largely via cassettes issued by outsider institutions like Digitalis Limited, 905 Tapes, SicSic Tapes, Hausu Mountain, Fag Tapes, and many more. But Gedalecia’s curiously unpredictable and expansively remunerative sounds have only appeared once on wax, with the project’s self-titled LP on Spectrum Spools two years ago. Experimedia now breaks Head Boggle’s vinyl abstinence with Serge Modular in Hi-Fi, a hyper-schizoid trek of surreal sonics recorded around the time of the Spectrum Spool LP that touches on each of Gedalecia’s strengths, from the caved-in lows to the wide-eyed and blinding highs. From the howling buzzes and haunted blips of tracks like “’68 News” and “’19 Orchestra” to the pseudo-industrial ragas of “’63 Dance” and “’59 Rhapsody,” Serge Modular in Hi-Fi highlights the long-running project’s possessed approach to both off-the-cuff and academic electronic exploration, “all achieved in the S.F. City College Electronic Music Lab utilizing “a vintage, pre-STS Serge Modular Synth system and was conceived as a pseudo aural ‘cubist’ sound piece with an intention to achieve pseudo 3D ‘cubed’ sound through discrete recording and mixing techniques.” Count me fully in.

The video for “’56 Tune,” premiered above, serrates archival footage of a mountaineer into a dizzying mania of confused angles and captivating hysteria. The visual accompaniment pairs well with the track’s ever-revolving sound. Serge Modular in Hi-Fi is due out 7/7/14, but you can pre-order a copy now directly from Experimedia. Also, as a bonus, anyone who pre-orders the LP before the release date can enter coupon code ‘headboggle’ for 10% off an entire order, meaning the early bird truly does get the worm.

Say the word drone, chances are most people will think you mean Unmanned Aerial Vehicles deployed by armed forces in far-flung places. But a drone can also be found in the sounds we hear. Without getting too technical, a drone is any sustained tone. Drone is also a style of music emphasizing timbre and is rhythmically still, or very slow, with minimal variation. It can be acoustic, electronic, or a combination of both. Take for example, Phill Niblock, a composer whose single-focused music is an intense, immersive listening experience. This is what we mean when we say drone.

Celebrating the resonances between contemporary video and sound art, this program proffers a party platter of creative projects that work the edge between disciplines. Headlining: the histrionic antics of Derek G, AKA Head-boggle. Derek’s analog synth compositions follow those of Tommy Becker, back by popular demand with two new pieces: Song for the Pain Body and Song for the Discarded. Initiating tonight’s electronic synesthesia are the moody soundscapes of Everrett Thompson and Nico Cevallos of Vision Nocturna. PLUS Delia Derbyshire, Bruce Haack, and Painleve’s Sex Life of an Octopus.

Quicksails / Headboggle – Mugen: Volume 6

3-Panel_JCard_FRONT_AI

Volume 6 of the Mugen Series unites Headboggle (Derek Gedalecia) and Quicksails (Ben Billington), two veterans of the experimental underground and prodigal sons of Ohio, for a split tape of mind-expanding synthesis on the maximal and minimal poles of the spectrum.
Derek Gedalecia has commanded the attention of the avant/noise underground as Headboggle (sometimes Head Boggle) for nearly a decade now, showcasing his unpredictable live performances and omnivorous synth mastery in DIY venues across the country – and on over 60 physical releases on labels like Baked Tapes, 905 Tapes, Spectrum Spools (2012′s self-titled LP), and his own Greedmink imprint. The Headboggle catalog speeds into the future as a continuing experiment with new equipment, compositional processes, and live performance tactics, as each release pushes the boundaries of his gear and his mind into more and more maniacal post-post-Subotnick free-for-alls. “Serge Solo,” Gedalecia’s hallucinogenic live set for the Mugen Series, was recorded at San Francisco City College when the maestro had access to the institution’s Serge modular synth. A far cry from the bonkers kitchen-sink synth-noise of some Headboggle releases, the session crawls at an imperceptible pace through a series of disembodied bleeps, processed through analog delay units and separated by lengthy swathes of silence. Untethered from considerations of rhythm, structure, or harmony, Gedalecia approaches the session as a liberating study in tone and structural drama, relishing in each of its sudden bursts of activity as much as the contrasting empty space between them.

Available May 2014 on limited edition Cassette Tape – C37 – Imprinted tape, pro dubbed, download code included.
Limited to 100. Find out more info about this album on its page in the catalog.
