Felix Obelix relocates again (and a reminder of records)0October 9th, 2015Uncategorized
FO fans and acquaintances and spambots whose programs have programmed them to come here:
I’ve relocated to London for 2015-2016 for a graduate programme (a MMus in Creative Practice at Goldsmiths, University of London), which means new tracks, new performances, and fish-and-chip-inspired nightmares. I do plan at some point to officially release the two tunes for high school choir premiered last spring, but in the meantime, I want to remind you of some anniversaries:
The Ringtone Album is two years old now, solidly walking around and mouthing off like all two-year-olds. I’ve been told by several humans that their own two-year-old humans really like this record: catchy and weird and each song just a minute long, perfect for toddler attention spans. Originally intended as a series of songs for your cellphone to ring with, people no longer care about ringtones, and the tunes are taking on a new life as podcast/TV bumper music. If you’re a person looking for 10 seconds of exactly this for your podcast or TV show or commercial, please shoot me an email (felixobelix [at] gmail).
The Tick of the Clock, the Beat in the Chest – The first Felix Obelix album, now five years old, has started kindergarten and has its own fully-fledged personality. My emotions towards this album are very complex, as my personal life exploded shortly after its release. In freefall from that, I didn’t have much heart to push it in the way it deserved, but listening now after all this time, I am still very proud of this record (and appreciative of the small army of musicians it took to pull it off). This is a “pop” record, or perhaps more precisely, an “unpop” record. For fans of those who explore the relationship of time and death to memory.
Both can be listened to here: https://felixobelix.bandcamp.com/music or via all the regular channels of almighty internet.
