I might very well have been home sick from school when I first learned the word 'Fritatta' as I watched a public television cooking show assemble one. The chef took leftover spaghetti and sausage and whipped in some eggs and diced vegetables and created a some sort of alien pancake with it. That's more or less what I have done here. Leftover pieces in my dish are from the first five episodes of Mangled Meditations. Unfinished segments, unused sections, and pieces long forgotten are peppered with new directions, fresh samples, and bold inspirations. At the center of the Frittata, is a sound collage that shortly preceded a tragic event in my life which I remember escaping from with the creation of Musical Palsey. This piece, “Summer of 93”, has been deboned, sectioned, and reconstructed to form the second half of the show. “Summer of 93” was sent on cassette to the Metamundane Initiative, who created an album called "I'm Cutting My Looly Teeth – The Wrist Cocked, Ready to Strike" which was one of the driving forces behind my first Musical Palsey album. Metamundane Initiative responded to “Summer of 93” with some interesting recordings of their own and this is also dolloped on top of the whole fried, baked, and cleverly plated dish: Musical Palsey's Frittata. So, Take a hit of something, or several and ponder what the hell is going on as you digest Musical Palsey's sixth 43 minute episode of Mangled Meditations.
