Call for Authors, Poets, and Spoken Word Artists to Send Tracks for The G-Man's Fifth Album
Los Angeles 9/13/2005 05:26 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)
Using the most wide-open audition process in the history of independent recording, all spoken word artists who submit CD-R tracks of their work will be considered for collaboration on The G-Man's fifth album.
"Groove-moody music will be matched to the word-beat of poets and authors on tracks from the forthcoming album," stated Brian Forest, VP of G-Man Music, the company owned by Scott G.
"This is a rare opportunity for a spoken word artist to debut on an internationally-distributed album by one of the underground's most written-about musicians," Forest continued. "We're contacting universities, literary publications, poets and journalists," Forest added.
Reviewers have called The G-Man's music "Moby meets Devo" (by a TV producer), "Moby meets Bowie" (by record producer Pete Anderson), and "the rhythm of machines with melodies of the heart" (by writer Janis Amy).
Producer/engineer Matt Forger (who worked with Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney) called a track from G's most recent album "a real trip through the twilight zone of trance." Forger has done three remixes of G-Man songs.
"There were spoken word tracks on my first album," G said, "and it's always been a goal to expand the scope of that style, so I welcome submissions from word artists in every category. I love many examples of spoken word," G stated, "most notably the series of Word Jazz albums created by Ken Nordine, but I'm open to all approaches."
You can hear selections from The G-Man's albums on iTunes, on the Delvian Records website, and on the G-Man Music website.
