Moondog (2)

Real Name:
Louis Thomas Hardin
Profile:
Born May 26, 1916 in Marysville, Kansas; died September 8, 1999 in Münster, Germany.
Moondog wrote most of his music in braille, having lost his sight in an accident involving a dynamite cap at the age of 17.
Revered pioneer on the avant-garde/minimalist scene, usually within the jazz realm. His revolutionary attitude towards composition and melody was lauded by such eminent contemporaries as Philip Glass and Steve Reich, while his style and attitude drew comparisons to Harry Partch. His influence can be seen in the music of Stereolab and Moonshake among many others.

What will continue to irk me until the end of my days is the lack of Moondog recordings compared to the amount of compositions he'd apparently made. A great deal of his records include re-recorded material--in some cases, re-titled--while other stuff is absent. Where are the unreleased compositions of 'Logrundr' or the other 'Symphoniques?' I need more, con sarnit.

His music has a shamanic vibrant feel. Moondog is pure music.
