Norman Minogue

Norman Minogue's muse fell from a large billboard and floated into a ravine along a County Highway in Western Kentucky. A fragment of the discarded message was all that remained. Norman picked up that fragment of pasted paper and has carried it with him for the last 30 years. What was the message? Have a look and listen.

Winter brings with it unheard music. We begin with a free download of Norman Minogue's "Experimental Recordings 2009". He also creates visual art that remains unseen. Some of which will be revealed on these pages.

The adept recordings radio hour posts Program #3, featuring Sick City Four live in the studio. Programs #1 & #2 are found in the archive which includes playlists for each archived program. Have a listen or download by right-clicking on the player and "saving as". Enjoy!

And, Tuesday January 29th, at 9pm, check out the Experimental Music Lab at the Haymarket Whiskey Bar. See you there!

Experimental Recordings 2009

January 20, 2013

This collection of sound manipulation by Norman Minogue represents a year of experimentation within the framework of moments. Tape Recorder as Time Machine. Moog as Spaceship. Play. Repeat. Decide for yourself how long to stop time. I could listen to track #8 forever but I might die from what Erik Satie referred to as "serious immobilities".

Listen to each here, or download the mp3 zip (includes a printable cover.)

The voices of Karlheinz Stockhausen, Louise Bourgeois, David Deutsch, R.Williams and Elizabeth Peyton have been made use of in these recordings.
