BipTunia styles: TripHop / Downtempo / Rock / Pop / Glam / Industrial / Ambient / Jazz / Space / Minimalism
BipTunia is former Warner Brothers artist Michael W. Dean (singer / bass player in Bomb) with a new project of TripHop / Downtempo / Rock / Pop / Glam / Industrial / Ambient / Jazz / Space / Minimalism.
Unlike a lot of electronic music, this has melody and structure, won’t hurt your ears (even loud), and you’ll be humming it later. Basically it’s heavy as heck AND radio friendly.
BipTunia is based in Wyoming, yet exists everywhere.
Sometimes BipTunia also includes spoken word by Phil Wormuth. He runs the JipProd word gang in rural Maine. He and Michael went to college together during the Cold War, in the Rust Belt of America. They tried making this music back then, but the technology had to catch up.
These two guys were best friends in college, played in a bar band called “The Armless Children.”
They lost track of each other for 30 years, got back in touch in 2017, and immediately made this music.”
Their music is a series of concept albums about dancing out the end of the world. But it’s not depressing. There is hope.
WHY WE HAVE WRITTEN EXPLANATIONS OF THE WORDS IN OUR SONGS:
BipTunia’s work with Phil is good music, it’s also art. But it’s also a “teaching hospital” to get people into poetry more and help them understand it. Thus, the notes.
Phil and Michael started doing poetry readings together in the early 80s, and feel that poetry is kind of a dying art. We want to bring it back from the dead.
“Hot damn. I am loving it. It’s dark. Like a punk rock & synth Leonard Cohen.”
–Derrick J. Freeman, co-owner, Free State Bitcoin Shoppe
“This album is proof positive that we are not alone in the universe, that someone (or thing) is taking our calls…and listening.
“The sound is of cosmic cats stopping by to use the earthly litter box, trample our truffles, and share some sage advice (namely that the enemy is us – it’s in our blood on the floor) before departing for home to Alpha-Centauri.
“If you listen between the lines, these cats are purring pure philosophy and polemic poetry. But you can also dance to it.”
–Sid Cusk, the Cusk Agency
