#mymorningjam: “#ThePinkMice in Synthesizer Sound“. What a curious record by a group of masterful German musicians from 1972! I guess it was a thing in the 70s to adapt classical pieces, drawing them into a rock/jazz realm and improvise on those old musical foundations. (This was in a pile of records i got from a school i used to work at and was probably used way too often by boring music teachers of that era in a vain effort to convince their students that “really, classical music can be cool !)
The songs all stem from the #ancientmasters - #bach#tchaikovsky#mozart#schumann and more. some fun sounds and arrangements which at times border on the comical... apparently, these skilled musicians weren’t able to actually make a living off this project and played in mainstream German #Volksmusik bands of the 70s such as #jameslast and #mariusmuellerwesternhagen.
I enjoyed and applaud the musicality, don’t think it’ll be making its way into my regular playlist for a while though
Just finished filming my 3rd of 12 #musicvideos with this incredibly #creative and talented couple, Ally and David! Thanks so much for your ideas, #artisticvision and time, guys - I can’t wait to release this amazing film!
