Funk from the AlienMonk brings the warped thinking of frank zappa into the techno age.funky grooves with a hook, and a side of sarcasm....
Tell me about your history? How did you get where you are now?
from 2000 to 2007, Quest For Tibet was my main music project and as i composed songs, some of them did not fit into the format of QFT. so Alienmonk became a side project for these other songs, which led to more Alienmonk songs and 4 cds so far. the music is sample base grooves with vocal sound effects and snippets of voices blended in. most of the songs fall into two catagories, 1 float pink floyd style mixed with electronic grooves, or frank zappa influenced humor or sexually effected tunes. all nicely warped into a funky electronic groove.
Have you performed live in front of an audience? Any special memories?
yes,in a semi-catatonic state.(north carolina, i think)
