"Remix/version/deconstruction of the music of a dead trumpet player."-Jumbo

Sinister looping and shimmering works from Mr. Dorgon, taking on the trumpet - or at least, a dead trumpeter - Miles Davis, as seen on the cover photo. The pieces use vinyl sources of records of primarily trumpet music, mutated through ringing effects into a brassy soup of smoothed distortions and feedback. The pieces, with names like "Smack Up", "Cognac Drip" and "40 Ounce Fag Threads" ranging from trance-inducing music that might be listened to by the dead, or eccentric vinyl scratching over stretched and jarring horn-scapes. An assemblage of oddly diverse and definitely odd pieces, an unusual homage to a cool dead player.

For Jason Viseltear
Jason Viseltear, based in NYC, makes violins, violas, and cellos for both contemporary and period / baroque performance. Inexplicably, Mr. Dorgon dedicated this work to him, a piece of sound and noise, perhaps constructed using string instruments; perhaps not.

Shot in the Face
Featuring an x-rated insert in a puff-up brown paper package, Mr. Dorgon attacks with two electronic works and a harmonica solo from a live show on KFJC in California.
Unusual, head-scratching works of sound & noise or cracked pludnerphonics with a good sense of pacing that lulls and befuddles on it's own schedule.
