Something Old Sunday #27 (The 27th Angel Heard Not Heard Music Video & The Experimental Short “Down with Germs”)…

From 2003-2009 I was constructing music under the name The 27th Angel. I think I even had a Myspace Page to showcase this experimental music. I used the programs Acid Pro & Fruity Loops to compose tunes but I also had a myriad of instruments in my possession that I sampled (i wouldn’t say I was a natural musician, hence why I classified my songs as experimental.) including a wooden flute, various percussive pieces including djembe drums, a keyboard, and a harmonica. But I also sampled music (no clearance, never published this music or made it available or performed it anywhere, this was just my artistic outlet for those years) and household appliances and natural sounds and cats.

When I set out to construct Heard Not Heard it was the only song I ever made that was directly influenced by another song. The Talking Heads deep cut called Seen not Seen from the 1980 Album Remain in light. I tried to follow the musical patterns of each instrument of this song and then composed and talk-sang lyrics that are like the opposite of what David Byrne is singing.

I’d say my song is about an ex soldier dealing with PTSD and quite possibly having killed himself in a bathtub. The Imagery is pretty disturbing and yeah that’s my awful acting LOL But the song is pretty cool. Hope you enjoy.

Heard Not Heard by The 27th Angel

The Next Film is just a weird experimental short, I honestly don’t even remember where I sampled the music or the background noises, I completely forgot I made this to be honest. But it is pretty cool. Although the first 57 seconds is the end of another 27th Angel tune/video called Suffocation. I will show that in the future, bare with me I am doing my best to capture this stuff without the best equipment. LOL

The Last 57 seconds of Suffocation by The 27th Angel followed by the experimental short Down with Germs.
