Head Boggle: Headboggle
Collection of dense, multi-facetted electronic/acoustic music hybrids
Recorded at his apartment studio, "Headboggle" is the manifestation of Derek Gedalecia’s acoustic/electronic research utilizing the "kitchen sink" in every sense of the idiom: Moogs, Harmonica, Banjo, Harpsichord, Irish Harp, EMS Synthi, Violin, Drums, Clavinet, Serge Modular, field recordings and more! What makes "Headboggle" so special is the careful arrangement of sound, with painstaking attention to composition and sound direction. Disorienting magic is a key trait of the Head Boggle sound, one which captivates and commands repeated inspection. Like any great focused album effort, there is a narrative arc - from the introductory "Flourescent Star" with it’s dizzying, fractured crackle and bizarre piano float to the tension packed, information-overloaded squabble and squawks of the "Dream Diary" and "Europa Astrobiology Lander" tracks. "Head Boggle" is a dedicated and devotional effort - one with precision and prodigious vision.
