About this project

Say "porn music", and expect 2 general reactions..

head rolls back... foot works an imaginary '70s wah pedal...                          voice does a nasal-y "WAKA waka wahwaowohYeEEAaahhhbebeee.."          or                                                                                                                        head rolls back... foot works an imaginary Rat pre-reissue fuzz pedal...          voice reaches down for a subterranean spooky Slipknot-esque "ARRRRRrhhhhhUHHhuuh uhhuAUUuuggggghhhh" tribute..

These groovy tropes are both somewhat accurate: wahwah pedals and cheesy horn sections were a fun staple of 70s porn flix, and metal low-bottom chunk works its sexy magik in many current gonzo porns.

As an orchestral composer, and also as someone who performed in, directed, shot, edited, scored and sound designed several dozen hardcore xxx porn features over a 10-year period, I realized early on that the Adult-film genre was wide open to cinematic possibilities, and to the types of music I dig.

Having received recognition and awards in both music and Adult film, my feet are planted equally in each of their aesthetics. This makes the CD project, "MUSIC FOR SMUT FLIX", arguably the first of its kind. It will contain 38 original compositions I composed and adapted both for my internationally award-winning "underground experimental" xxx flicks, and for the ambitious large-scale xxx features (shot on HD and super-8) I created for mainstream Valley companies.                            

Genres will include contemporary chamber and string quartet works,             '60s and '70 styles, psyche-delicious instrumentals, free jazz, large-ensemble pieces, industrial/noise tracks, triphop, "downtown nyc" skronk, etc.

This collection also includes "Bree's Bossa". which I wrote and arranged for a 15-piece LA version of my Illuminati Orchestra and vocalist, for the ratpack-homage xxx feature, "The Crack Pack". This piece won the 2010 AVN Award for Best Original Song.

This Kickstarter project has been created to remix, as needed (and in some cases, re-record), sequence and master this eclectic material, in preparation for its release on Unseen Rain Records (a new avant/jazz/improv/experimental label). My target release date is August 2012.

Since I own all the rights to all my own music used in all these films, i thought  that  a cool overview of my NYC compositional approaches to hardcore smut     would be a timely and interesting project.

Thanks
Joe
