Sometimes when I`m shaving, using the blender or any other machine and listening music simultaneously I notice that the machine is buzzing in key with the song. When the chords progress I have to rew up the blender to stay in key with the music and if I can`t, I almost got to stop the machine (I know it sounds... well, actually it is obsessive). The funny part starts when you go outside: there`s snippets of music everywhere! Sometimes they`re in key but most of the time not and that`s when you get new ideas for music. I bet you have noticed this also. Care to share?

This is very thought evoking. We could start the discussion of what is noise and what is music but it would be a lenghty thread leading to nothing. People have discussed the same thing in the art community for decades: what is a work of art and what is just a thing on display? However, this thread is about noise that somehow sounds musical to YOU.

When I use the drill or my chainsaw, I have always some music on my mind... the sounds that machines create reminds me everytime some songs... and I thought that I was crazy thinking that... :roll:

I wonder what years are these vids from?

'60s something?!

Now this is what I call experimenting, and maybe it was about 40 years ago...

Frank has always been ages beyond everything and anyone else.

Amazing and insane at the same time.

Thanx a lot for sharing this pearls :)

If you guys want to dig deeper and find out where Frank got inspiration to his experimentations you should check out Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928 - ). http://www.stockhausen.org/. Frank Himself (along with Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Sonic Youth...) has said many times in interviews, that he finds Stockhausen`s works the most inspirational.

That was 1963. Three years before Zappa released his first album with The Mothers Of Invention. Pretty cool,huh?

You're all welcome!

So, we can call that as "The Father Of The Mothers Of Invention"
