For this session we specifically set aside a little time for some ceremonial music. A Korg unit we've used as a sampler and trigger went belly up, so instead of fixing it, we had a funeral for it to send it along its fated celestial path. Meaning, we burned it. We also filmed it and recorded a soundtrack for it, "Cremation Musik For The Korg." It was inspired, of course, by our previous, substantially similar epic entitled "Funeral Music For The Dokorder," which was a requiem for an old reel-to-reel from our garage days before school. It went belly up, too. We had marshmallows for that one. But, since we were filming all this, we went ahead and filmed a black & white documentary of the making of the music for the cremation film of the Korg, titled, yes... "Wings of Fear: The Documentary of the Making of The Soundtrack to Cremation Musik For The Korg." (The Wings of Fear part is just to give it that Werner Herzog touch.) It's us playing live to the film (and... the original soundtrack). Pretty incestuos, huh? It's for the extras section of the DVD that won't come out. Shelly the Art Buff didn't think the cover was funny. Recorded July 7, 2007.
