So Do You Think the Future of Music is Dead?

Hahaha, made you groan! Ok, so this is kind of ridiculous, but I had to do it for the sake of… well, ridiculousness! A friend of mine turned me on to the above video the other day (1st part of like a 5 or so part series). It’s an interview with Mike Patton from like ’92 or something. It is HYSTERICAL! It goes something like this… Interviewer asks dumb question, Patton gives dumb answer in between bites of a really gross looking sandwich. It’s brilliant! At one point (after Patton says a series of really disparaging things about the state of music today) the interviewer asks if Patton thinks the future of music is dead. 

I’m just going to let you stew in the brilliance of the question for a moment…  

aaaaand we’re back. So Patton then gives one of the best answers to that question I think possible. Anyway, I was laughing my head off. So for some reason this exchange inspired me to make the following rip off of “It’s Gonna Rain” with the question and response. If you can actually listen to this whole track you deserve an award. I have to say though, if you do… at about the 3 minute mark your brain will start doing really weird things with you perception of time, it’s quite strange. Anyway, here it is… 

The worst thing about music…

    I think the future of that particular mp3 is dead. Well, at least for me, anyways.

  3. Jake Says:

    It’s Gonna Rain is one of the tracks that led me to develop my out-of-phase looping guitar technique. I love that track.

    davex, i’m actually kind of proud to have reached the boundaries of what you’re willing to listen to hahaha! seriously though… i made it all the way through once and by the time the echo part kicked in i could have sworn that each repetition of each sound was unique… it was odd to say the least.

  5. startlingmoniker Says:

    No, no… like a sap, I kept listening until the end. I really thought there’d be some grand payoff towards the end. Ach! Got any Latralmagog to wash this down with?

  6. howsthatsound Says:

    hahaha, sorry dude. the echo part at the end is kind of fun though, no? not that it was really a serious attempt at music making anyway haha. i just had to do something with those soundbites that paralleled their ridiculousness. i don’t have any more latralmagog to post now, maybe the previous post will offer some sollace. 🙂

  7. howsthatsound Says:

    oh, and no one has yet commented on the awesomeness of this interview!!! BANG ON A BADGER CARCASS! brilliant!!!

  8. startlingmoniker Says:

    I remember reading once that Phil Hart once used a human skull as a drum for one of the GD’s albums… not quite a badger carcass, but approaching it!

  9. howsthatsound Says:

    nice. yeah, zero kama played exclusively on tibettan ritual bone instruments, which are made of human skulls and thigh bones generally. metgubnerbone did as well, i’ve heard. they got arrested for robbing graves in their hometown.

    The link to this video is dead.
