Primary Instrument: Synthesizer
Blip Fool utilizes analog and digital synthesizers, guitars and effects to create jazz-influenced progressive electronic music.
Our tunes find themselves influenced by jazz and progressive music. The jazz influence rears itself mostly in the arrangements and solos and the occasionally enhanced harmonic structure throughout the tune. We've always liked the head-solo-head-solo-head sort of arrangement (thank you, Berklee!) The progressive influence appears in many of the lead lines and the melodies in the heads.
The music we make usually starts with a melody or a hook...if you listen to the tune Rough you'll hear it as soon as it kicks in. Everything was written around this hook. The harmonic structure surrounding it fit into place as the tune developed. Through months of listening and playing it became what it is today. Rough is a great example of the music we like to write and play....
