    Spectrum Spools are beyond excited to present you with the highly-anticipated vinyl debut of the Head Boggle project. The world has been waiting for this day to come, and finally a full-length long player has arrived. Recorded at his apartment studio, Headboggle is the manifestation of Derek Gedalecia’s acoustic/electronic research utilizing the “kitchen sink” in every sense of the idiom: Moogs, harmonica, banjo, harpsichord, Irish harp, EMS Synthi, violin, drums, clavinet, Serge Modular, field recordings and more! What makes Headboggle so special is the careful arrangement of sound, with painstaking attention to composition and sound direction. Disorienting magic is a key trait of the Head Boggle sound, one which captivates and commands repeated inspection. Like any great, focused album effort, there is a narrative arc — from the introductory “Flourescent Star” with its dizzying, fractured crackle and bizarre piano float to the tension-packed, information-overloaded squabble and squawks of the “Dream Diary” and “Europa Astrobiology Lander” tracks. Head Boggle is a dedicated and devotional effort — one with precision and prodigious vision. Equal parts François Bayle and Tod Dockstader in the best possible way, it’s still hard to pin such a multifaceted talent to any kind of descriptor. Derek has been honing his sound for years with loads of releases on almost every essential tape and CD-R label out there. Here we have his finest set of compositions yet in hi-fidelity, tight and tediously packed, forming his most concise release to date. The Head Boggle debut has raised the bar for classical electronic composition with the greats, a feat of rare occurrence.

    “Head Boggle returns to the vinyl format with what is perhaps his most refined and focused work to date. Serge Modular in Hi-Fi was recorded in early 2012 at the S.F. City College Electronic Music Lab utilizing a vintage pre-STS Serge Modular Synth system and was conceived as a pseudo aural ‘cubist’ sound piece with an intention to achieve pseudo 3D ‘cubed’ sound through discrete recording and mixing techniques. The only effects utilized were four or more analog delays being played real-time a la dub/reggae mixing techniques. The final selections were then sent to Kramer at Noise Miami for hi-fi correction and an aesthetic mastering treatment and then to Jeremy Bible for a final mastering treatment specifically for the vinyl format resulting in a sonically rich listening experience of hallucinatory synthesizer ragas. Derek Gedalecia has commanded the attention of the avant/noise underground as Head Boggle or nearly a decade now, showcasing his unpredictable live performances and omnivorous synth mastery in DIY venues across the country — and on over 60 physical releases on labels like Baked Tapes, 905 Tapes, Spectrum Spools, and his own Greedmink imprint. The Head Boggle catalog speeds into the future as a continuing experiment with new equipment, compositional processes, and live performance tactics, as each release pushes the boundaries of his gear and his mind into more and more maniacal post-post-Subotnick free-for-alls.”
