Axel Mundi Music & Press: Things to buy

Raccoon Dinner - CD



Going back to his hardcore progressive rock roots, this album features mostly instrumental, "orchestral" sounds, but still heavy with beat and bass. It features a psychedelicized new take on his 1990 "Slow Gong" (compare the original on the Sounds page).

Fear Of Hemispheres by The West Edge Trio



Three years in the making, thirty years in the waiting! The legendary first and only album by The West Edge Trio is now available from Axel Mundi Music. The avant-chamber group's 1987 recording, never before released, is now here to hear, thanks to an arrangment between Axel Mundi and original producer Steve Fiskar. At last the album by the influential Seattle trio of David Christos, Stuart Gregory, and Fron Kristenborg can be enjoyed in remastered CD quality, remixed from the original tapes. The unique New Music ensemble's combination of cello, electric-bass, and tenor saxophone came together in a burst of studio creativity only to be shelved due to the excesses of the people involved, and was buried under the onslaught of Seattle's 1990s Grunge Music Scene until Axel Mundi, who was part of that scene, was able to bring it back to the light in 2012. Now the legacy of the era that brought us Glass, Reich, and Kronos is fulfilled. Get your copy here!

J P And The Goats From Outer Space



This album features a variety of songs of "complex simplicity", each one revealing what was going on in Axel's mind on the day it was written. While many previous albums have had a theme running through them, this one is about moods. It is some of his most mature work.

Matrimonia



A romantic postcard, this album contains Axel's first bonafide erotic song. The disc portrays the players in a royal wedding to be held in a kingdom that is both ancient and modern. As always, psychedelic rock abounds, colored here and there with classical and jazz.

Cloud Of Light



Axel calls this album his gift to the world. He has expressed his spiritual message definitively, in a set of songs that includes psychedelic forays into physics, a paean to his departed mate, and a rock tale from the old country.

Childhood's End



When did childhood end? Does it all end at once, or do different parts of it end at different times? These songs don't answer those questions, but they do look at some fading memories as well as some present day troubled thoughts. The album contains nine songs--radio friendly, that is if your radio is tuned to psychedelic music for a new era.

It's also for sale at CD Baby.

One night in the life of Gregor S.



A concept album if ever there was--one night's dreams. Our hero, a descendant of Kafka's famous bug-man, is on a psychedelic whirlwind tour of his psyche. Not a very restful night. 11 tracks, half rockers and half just plain nightmares.

Northwest Passage



In past centuries, the search for the Northwest Passage was a search for a continuous water route from Europe to the Orient. The Passage searched for in this album is one from the mind to the Infinite. Music is the vessel, sound is the ocean. The land we are trying to reach is called Now.

Variations On A Drone



While creating a rendition of Amazing Grace for a movie soundtrack, I devised a bagpipe drone which I liked so well that I decided to use it for a song of my own. This became a piece called “The Sound”. Amazing Grace itself, which isn’t my favorite piece of music by a long shot, managed to creep in as well, in a kind of underhand way. The new song turned out so well, though, that I thought I would modify that drone somewhat and use it for another song. This led to the idea of doing a whole set of songs using variations on this drone sound, with each song having some little bit of Amazing Grace lurking somewhere in it as well. Before long I had eight songs, and a new album.

Christmas With Pierre

<Christmas With Pierre

Believe it or not, our beloved company President, Pierre Poodle, played all the instruments in this 2008 production. He also selected the songs. Axel says, "We took our time, letting him play with the equipment. Pierre was not a musician by training, just a music lover. I didn't bill him for the studio time, and made liberal use of the "paws button" on the console.

Special Pierre Memorial price (including shipping): $7.50.
