Inn Paradiso

by Kubilay Uner

Thickly layered instrumental music played by multitudes, fuzz-boxed folklore from a people not yet discovered, electronic, acoustic and steam-driven, all at the same time.

Album Notes

This is music about swamp people parties, giant sunflowers, revolutions, Otis the arsonist, and the kid whose genie made the whole market dance [but it's really about none of this at all.]

It's got escalators, packs of wolves, trains, crowds, a little girl, and a punk yelling into my location recording mic. There are trumpets, there are pipes, there are cellos, a hammond organ, and plenty of reeds.

There are shoe boxes with rubber bands and flower pots and voice mutators and synthesizers and stomp boxes and a mic pre and stomp boxes, more stomp boxes, more stomp boxes, more stomp boxes and a guitar and more stomp boxes and a tube amp and distortion!

It's dense and sparse [but mostly dense.] It's loud and soft [but mostly loud.] There's no message, it's not *about* anything - it's just there for you to listen.
