"OVER WHAT RAINBOW?"
"Over What Rainbow? - An Electronic Dedication To Mort Garson" (2008)
The very first Something Weird EP is a dedication to one of my favorite musicians of all time: legendary 60's/70's Moog composer, Mort Garson! Mort Garson's extensive works included a psychedelic mental journey into the Land of Iz with Dorothy, the Scared Crow, The In Man and The Lyin' Coward to discover "where it's at" in the classic album "The Wozard of Iz", as well as an incense-and-opium-drenched celestial horoscope forecast in "The Zodiac: Cosmic Sounds", an instrumental electronic renedition of the 'Hair' soundtrack in "Electronic Hair Pieces", and even soothing Moog orchestrations to help your plants grow in "Mother Earth's Plantasia" (which was givien away with Serta mattresses in the late 60's). And that's just to name a few!
Most of Mort Garsons albums are hard to come by in stores or online, so if you want to check out his music check out Egg City Radio! Be sure to check out both part 1 and part 2 of their Mort Garson post. They have some of his best works tucked away.
All 4 of these tracks are Something Weird originals, and were simply inspired by his music. They are not covers of any of his songs. Also note these were digitally created.
I hope you enjoy it, and allow it to to take over your senses! :o)
