How does it work?
You know how it’s difficult to hold a conversation while someone else is talking obnoxiously?
It’s the same for horrible music but with a large advantage: Badly played music attacks more parts of the brain than just ordinary loud noises. A poorly played musical instrument is impossible to ignore and will cut through walls, windows, and ambient noise like magic.
If your neighbors are “musicians” you’ll be happy to know that this CD probably contains the same solo instrument they’re playing. Just much, much worse: If they play the guitar and hear another guitar played horribly they’ll find it impossible to practice or jam. Worst of all they fear that everyone will think it’s THEM playing this crappy. Result: They stop.
Playing badly is an art
It’s harder than you think. We locked 23 gifted instrumentalists into our studio and didn’t let them leave until all tapes were filled and all bottles emptied. The result is a hilarious library of ear-bending terror nothing short of ingenious.
The playing is bad enough for even tone-deaf folks to recognize as miserable musicianship but it never sounds like purposely butchering an instrument.
Sounds like YOU
Each track is expertly mastered to sound as natural as it came out of the instrument: Clean and no effects added (so it sounds like your room, not like a concert stage) but all tell-tales removed (breaths, pedals, keys shouldn’t be heard from afar). Nobody will accuse you of playing a loud stereo. Instead you’ll just “practice your violin" for a few hours. Enjoy!
