https://headboggle.bandcamp.com/album/polyphonic-rehearsal-oak-sf

Derek Gedalecia, a.k.a. Headboggle, has been performing electronic keyboard-based soundscapes for several years in the Bay Area in over a hundred local performances at venues ranging from GTK to YBCA. Incorporating lowbrow with highbrow art, music, and comedy, Head Boggle’s intent is to fuse together a new ecstatic improvisational performance style with a carefully crafted musical underbed. In his formative years, Gedalecia studied classical and ragtime piano from noted ragtime composer/revivalist Dr. Brian Dykstra. .

“Headboggle has gone commercial with one-minute jingles of brain-damaged intent. I can’t get over this joker’s Modern Ballroom Dancing© sound! It puts me super smiley in the headspace of Mort Garson or the Residents. My favorite release of his so far.” —Bran(…)Pos
