"The Tangerine Album" (part 1 of the "Music Is Like Food" Trilogy) shows once again that Lex Plexus finds genre descriptions to be ever so irrelevant.

Lex's computer is like a black hole - sometimes a whole summer can disappear and he won't even know what happened except that his hard drive is full of music. But not in vain, as this is music unlike most. Call it surreal, elegant, relaxing, twisted, maddening... Lex's music reflects an expansive portion of the spectrum of human possibilities. Emotions, perceptions, ideas, concepts, instincts and ideals all make their way into the mix. Using sound as colour to defy and redefine common notions of beauty and coherence seems to be part of the plan for Lex Plexus.

Sonically speaking, "The Tangerine Album" is an endless array of sources - the sound of a bee buzzing, rubber balls bouncing on cans of paint, trains, fences rattling, dense clouds of broken mandolin, vocoder, granular synthesis, fractally generated melodies... Plus, just enough of the standard run-of-the-mill stuff like malfunctioning synthesizers, drum machines, classical guitar, drums, bass, vocals, djembe, shakers, vocoder, whistling, rattling chairs, tons of obscure computer software... Each copy of "The Tangerine Album" was packaged in a handmade fluorescent sleeve with one-of-a-kind artwork!

Vibrations reflecting life, the universe, and everything: Lex Plexus.
