Eric Frye (Minneapolis composer/curator of experimental music) kicks off new platform "gmebogosse" with mixes by Jailblazer and CF

Because actual book-burning is an affront to free expression, why don’t you at least imagine going into the local public library, checking out every available book on music theory, and using them as a source of warmth in lieu of freshly-chopped firewood. Late fees are forgiven if you explain a book’s destruction philosophically, so be prepared to sympathize with Minneapolis curator and composer Eric Frye, who’s all about theory, using related ideas as bases for creating music outside the bounds of what we’ve unconsciously accepted. Or, I should say, creating music and sponsoring music, as Frye has recently started a new platform that essentially wears shirts as pants. And damn it looks good.

“gmebogosse” is the name of the new platform, and Frye appears to have pulled it from a colorful lesser-known electroacoustic instrument manufactured in France during the early 1970s. The platform itself has partially as its SoundCloud description: “Digital transmission space focusing on the presentation of audio and text pieces by artists and thinkers. Examining the exchange from one field of study to another.”

gmebogosse’s first two releases feature music and text from artists Jailblazer (a.k.a. friend of the site Justin Meyers) and CF. Pay special attention to the first one, if verbal experiments are your thing:

And if you’re in Minneapolis, catch Justin Meyers tonight opening for Thurston Moore at the Triple Rock Social Club.
