The press loves Bad Music for Loud Neighbors because it offers a devious solution to a problem we all know; Inconsiderate neighbors. Presenting this hilarious set of CDs along with eye-catching art and ear-splitting sound samples makes your readers love you even more.
13 horribly played solo instruments to drive your enemies insane. Evil neighbors be gone! This CD makes it sound like you’ve taken up playing an instrument. Badly. For very long. Put a track on loop and leave the house. By the time you get back they’ll be packing to move.
A vaudevillian at heart, I’ve always admired the combination of music and comedy. As a magician and hobby neuroscientist the concept of “functional music” (shopping mall soundtracks, sleep aid compositions) fascinates me to no end. So I attempted to combine those disciplines into a new genre that’ll hit many nerves for different reasons. An eclectic cocktail of music and situational comedy with a dash of devious behavioral psychology.
When I settled down last summer and finally had time to master the recordings from the road my dream came true. I haven’t stopped laughing ever since. And so did everyone who heard it. For diverse motives: The strangeness of the product, the awfulness of the music, the sheer brilliance of some of the tracks (Violin and Piano are my favorite) that manage to vividly tell the touching story of ambition and comedic failure. But mainly: The instant proof-pudding, witnessing the awe-inspiring mixture of cringe, laughter, and flashbulb moment “hey I could use this on…” in everyone who hears a track.
It’s been a pleasure creating something as wacky as my last hit (iBeer for iPhone and Android) and I’m happy that “Bad Music for Loud Neighbors” outdoes its predecessor in one major aspect. It’s not just bizarre and funny, but it actually solves a real problem. This CD won’t sell as many units as said app because we all agree that beer is more important than “revenge by weaponized music” and that’s OK with you and I: After all it’s our secret weapon. Enjoy!
