Genre: Electronic

Out of stock

Spectrum Spools are beyond excited to present you with the highly-anticipated vinyl debut of the Head Boggle project. The world has been waiting for this day to come, and finally a full-length long player has arrived. 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 its 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. Equal parts François Bayle and Tod Dockstader in the best possible way, it's still hard to pin such a multifaceted talent to any kind of descriptor. Derek has been honing his sound for years with loads of releases on almost every essential tape and CD-R label out there. Here we have his finest set of compositions yet in hi-fidelity, tight and tediously packed, forming his most concise release to date. The Head Boggle debut has raised the bar for classical electronic composition with the greats, a feat of rare occurrence.
