Notes and Editorial Reviews

Confused Music was founded in Ovodda, a small town on the island of Sardinia in Italy 2005, by brothers Joey and Vito Zeeno. In 2007 the brothers stole across the pond in search of fresh faces, new places landing first in Montreal. After spending six gelid months there, they strove south then west at winter's end to Montana. Eventually spending six weeks in the woods clubbing trees with the residents of a commune near Glacier National Park. It was there amidst bear, mountain and stream they befriended Nigel Knowles, a futurist musician and day-trader millionaire. Nigel was known for his keen ear and fleet of vintage synthesizers he kept at his home in LA. When he told the brothers he owned an original Moog 5, an ARP 2600, a Fairlight series Read more IIx, and an Elka string ensemble we had to ask, "What's an Elka string ensemble." "A toy with a serious 60 cycle hum," he said (whatever that means). The rest is a legend of incredible, incredulous and vascular musical musing. Of synthesized chaos floated upon a clouded terrestrial pool of vapidity. Of taming the noise and mayhem of the LA street into rhythmic soup with a well-heeded musicality. Of penning a music with order and thematic audacity. With a craft so utterly abaft in our age, it makes the high-minded weep. No superfluous garnishes. Rock solid development. Melding technology with motive. Can with string. Pole with one's soul. A music of bears on the prowl, wolves at night howl, feckless hunters urinating on trees. The dulcet song of birds. The squeal of rutting elk. The stanch of gunfire. The mewl of sirens. The air of despair about the south LA beat. Concinnity Recordings is proud to introduce the polyphonous squilla from these musical mongrels. Thus we give to the world a less Confused Music. Read less
