Overview

Following the reissue of the Beyond the Black Crack LP, Paradigm delivers a second installment of outsider art from this American experimental showman. Collecting the offcuts of his numerous deranged sessions, this Kansas City tape collage artist turned electronic composer has an entirely unique vision, which is presented here as an overview of 25 years of work. A wide range of musical background informs the varied works on this collection, from Sun Ra-inspired space jazz to multi-channel electronic composition and experimental ensemble performance. It would seem that the Rev. Dwight Frizzell indulged in thousands of musical activities since the '70s, and this is just a small window into a bizarre sonic world. Comparisons are worthless, when as soon as his music resembles something slightly tangible it diverts back off into an unknown universe, and is all the better for it.
