ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
121normal (one-twenty-one normal) is an ongoing studio project featuring the music of Glenn Poorman. The name of the project comes from the address of Glenn's original working studio and the neighborhood where most of his early works were written and recorded.

The original studio was assembled around 1982 and consisted of two stereo cassette recorders hooked together for bouncing purposes. Hours of music of varying genres came out of those early sessions. Guest performers frequently appeared on the recordings and late night sessions were as much a social event as they were a musical one.

After a handful of moves, the studio returned to it's original location around 1985 at which point the dual cassette setup was replaced with an Audio Technica ATRMX64 four track cassette recorder and some studio quality effects units. This lasted well into the 90s at which point Glenn began experimenting with some digital recording setups such as early versions of Cakewalk and the earlier Roland workstations.

Today, Glenn's studio is all digital and computer based using Apple computers, Logic Pro software and audio interfaces made by MOTU and Mackie. The instruments he plays include the Chapman Stick®, electric and acoustic guitars, fretted and fretless electric bass, piano, keyboards and software instruments of all kinds including synths, rhythm programmers and samplers.

The first official CD release from 121normal is self-titled and consists of songs both new and old that capture the essence of Glenn's work, a work that could be described more as soundtrack than song. The instruments were all played by Glenn and two vocal tracks were provided by Mary Kay Blitz and Julie Marcos. The CD was co-produced by Glenn Poorman and Greg Howard and the mixing and mastering was done by Howard.

121Normal
An amazing cd, of what can be done with a Stick and a little imagination. Really good for his first cd, lots of original stuff. In his notes, an interesting journey through the world of computers and electronic music. I will be looking forward to his next release. Metro Detroit area, I might catch him live some time.
