A high-tech marketer by day, semi-professional synth programmer/sound designer and avocational filmmaker, Crosley says:“Leisure Addicts is my latest creative outlet, a musical response to the pressures of the high-stress, go-go Silicon Valley tech startup lifestyle. I’m very inspired by mid-century ‘lounge’ artists like Esquivel, Martin Denny, Les Baxter -- or even the 'Word Jazz' of Ken Nordine -- whose music evokes these imaginary, exotic audio locales that create a space for fantasy and escape in a complex and threatening world. It’s the same sort of social function that today’s chillout genre serves - music for relaxing, drinking, socializing, getting your low-key groove on...The style explored in Leisure Addicts is an outgrowth of some music cues I recorded for my film Moose as part of the 2008 48 Hour Film Project. Composed in about 40 minutes after nearly 48 hours without sleep, they expressed a tone that I wanted to develop further, but at a more leisurely pace.With Leisure Addicts, I’m focusing on using very contemporary electronic music production techniques to fuse a modern chillout vibe with vintage flavor, using gentle distortions, filtered delays, software emulations of vintage audio hardware and bits of vinyl noise to create an imaginary, retro-futuristic sound world without being obviously ‘lo-fi’.”Look for an album-length collection, Experiments in Leisure, in the latter half of 2009. In the meantime, individual tracks and videos are being released online -- at a suitably leisurely pace -- at Oh, and follow us as @LeisureAddicts on Twitter, of course...Keith R. CrosleyPlaylist1.
