For the last few years, Chris Madak has been on a tangled and cryptic path toward the full realization of his Bee Mask alterego. Now, for the first time there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel - a chance for old plans to come to fruition and for new ideas to blossom into the unknown. "Elegy for Beach Friday" is a personal selection of highlights from a slew of limited cassette and CDr editions recorded between 2003 and 2010, re-imagined, re-edited, and remastered, offering both a cross-section for the uninitiated and a fresh enigma for the already-enchanted.
The original documents will age on the shelves of those fortunate enough to have been the know, and for the rest of the world, we now have this double LP retrospective of Chris' favourite time-stopping microcosmic suites, woven together over four instantly classic sides of wax. Here, the full range of Bee Mask's sonic palette has been carefully compressed into a dazzling and infinitely dense time capsule of mind-altering Martian sound fields and psychedelic dimension bending, bridging the worlds of Nikola Tesla and Lamonte Young and giving us the ideal soundtrack for our collective walk down a dirt road into the gaseous cloud of our final days.
Synthesizers, percussion, piano, guitar, tape, electronics, and max/MSP recorded 2003-2010 in Northampton, MA, New York, NY, Cleveland, OH, and Philadelphia, PA. Edited and mixed at Tranquility Base, February 2011. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, May 2011
